Vancouver and Port Coquitlam, B.C. – GA Pizza has partnered with Mealshare to provide 2,000 frozen pizzas to CityReach Care Society, a registered charity that runs Food for Families, a free, nutritious foodbank for low-income households in the Greater Vancouver Area.

Today, 1,000 households served by CityReach Care Society will receive GA Pizza’s par-baked, naturally leavened frozen pizzas in their weekly Food for Families hamper, paired with fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, proteins and grains.

“There are many vulnerable families and kids in Vancouver that are experiencing tough times. It’s really important that we all keep giving where we can, as the need is greater than ever,” said Mackenzie Gentek, community leader for Mealshare. “We appreciate GA Pizza’s support and creativity when it comes to donations, and we can’t thank them enough for keeping Mealshare and our partners in mind.”

GA Pizza expanded to B.C. via its ecommerce website in December, and to local grocery stores shortly after.

“Having lived in Vancouver, I understand the real need that exists in the community,” says Ali Khan Lalani, founder and CEO of GA Pizza.
