Toronto – Pizza Nova recently delivered its latest installment in a series of donations to support breakfast programs for Ontario students.

On April 12, Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova, presented the contribution of $28,767 to Student Nutrition Ontario at a breakfast event held at Balmoral Drive Senior Public School in Brampton, Ont.

“Our commitment to a quality menu and authentic Italian recipes aligns perfectly with our goal to help students to start their day right—with a well-nourished mind that is ready to learn,” Primucci said in a news release. “It is through programs such as these that we can support the children of our province. We thank our loyal customers for their support in this campaign.”

Pizza Nova’s collaboration with Student Nutrition Ontario began with ‘Coins for Breakfast’ in 2015, a program supporting Student Nutrition Ontario through donation boxes at Pizza Nova locations. Today, 4,668 student nutrition programs support nearly one million students in Ontario daily.


“We see a noticeable improvement in concentration and academic performance among participants, underscoring the vital role of nutrition in education. So many children benefit from having access to healthy meals through their schools,” said Alexandra Pasiak, co-chair at Student Nutrition Ontario.

“Thanks to the support from Pizza Nova and Student Nutrition Ontario, our students start their mornings energized and ready to learn,” said Kevin Sebastian, principal at Balmoral Drive Senior Public School. “The positive atmosphere and improved focus in the classroom on days when students have had a hearty breakfast are palpable. This program doesn’t just feed our students; it gives them a foundational start to their day, fostering a better learning environment and nurturing their potential.”

This year’s donation brings Pizza Nova’s total contribution to Student Nutrition Ontario to a total of $293,509 since the start of their partnership.
