Domino’s donates more than 117 Hot & Fresh pizzas a day through national Feed the Knead program

Domino’s stores across Australia and New Zealand have donated more than 100,000 pizzas to individuals, charities and businesses in ‘knead’ through the Company’s Feed the Knead program since its inception in September 2020.

Feed the Knead allows individuals to nominate someone they know who is doing it tough via a form on the Domino’s website. The local store will then assess this application and provide support in the form of free pizza.

Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO David Burness said the Company is humbled to give back to the communities in which it operates.

“It is a privilege to make a positive difference to the lives of those around you.”

“I’m incredibly proud of the community-focused mindset that is consistently demonstrated in Domino’s stores, and thank our franchisees, team members, and pizza lovers across Australia for participating in the act of giving.”

Australian franchisees Nathan and Vanessa Quiring and Aiden Loy are the local owners and have pledged to donate 25,000 pizzas across their stores this year. The business owners said they are proud to feed the ‘knead’ in their local community.

“We wholeheartedly believe that this grassroots connection is how we deliver our most impactful work,” said Mr Quiring.

“The communities in which we operate are extremely generous, and giving back to them is the least we can do.”

The Feed the Knead program is championed by locally owned and operated Domino’s stores, with people encouraged to nominate someone in need in their local community.
