Read For Hunger

Since 1985, Pizza Hut® has sponsored the BOOK IT!® Program with a main goal of motivating students to read more and improve their reading skills in the process. Another goal we are passionate about is ending hunger worldwide, especially in children. Pizza Hut is a division of Yum! Brands, a company that has more than 36,000 restaurants around the globe. Working together we are making a difference.Pizza Hut raised nearly $2MM during the World Hunger Relief campaign last year and provided 8 million meals to the hungry. Thank you for helping us "Share a Slice of Hope."

100% of all money raised for World Hunger Relief goes directly to feeding people and a majority of the funds support the School Feeding Program, which is run by the World Food Programme. This initiative provides school children with what is most likely the only meal they will be eating that day. One dollar has the power to feed four children through this program.

In 2012, BOOK IT! readers raised more than $6,700 for World Hunger Relief, feeding 26,000 children just by reading their hearts out!
