On Saturday, Nov. 23, buying yourself a pizza at Panago will feed you and local school children.
Panago is selling medium garden veggie, New York deli, cheese, pepperoni and chicken club pizzas for only $5 Saturday, Nov. 23 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. for walk-in customers only. Panago will donate all proceeds to the Quesnel School District Breakfast Program, a non-profit organization that serves nutritious breakfasts daily to help students reach their full potential.
According to the Quesnel School District’s website, there are full breakfast programs operating in eight district schools. These programs are free and open to all students who attend those schools.
The programs operate in partnership with the Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Quesnel School District and the Quesnel Partnership for Student Nutrition Society.
The Quesnel School District Breakfast Program has been operating for eight years, and last year, the program served 71,909 breakfasts — or 414 breakfasts each day — an increase of nine per cent from the previous school year.
