If you’ve ever been to a Malawi’s Pizza you know that their gourmet pizzas are absolutely delicious—not to mention their decadent dessert pizzas—but did you know that with every pizza you ate you were also feeding a child in Malawi? Blake Roney created Malawi’s Pizza in partnership with Chef Kent Anderson after the Utah businessman returned home from a humanitarian trip to Malawi. With some 6.5 million people in Malawi suffering from hunger, Roney knew that these people needed more than just occasional help. They needed food on a regular and sustained basis. Roney created the Meal-for-Meal Exchange program in hopes of making a difference in the lives of these people he grew to love. Under the Meal-for-Meal Exchange program, the company delivers nutrient-dense meals to children and their families in Malawi through their partnership with Feed the Children.
Malawi’s Pizza recently announced that it has delivered 1 million meals to children in the impoverished nation, a milestone it is celebrating with a national expansion. Malawi’s Pizza currently has three stores in Utah, Texas and Virginia, with a fourth about to open in the Houston area and more than 20 in the development pipeline. Visit a Malawi’s Pizza near you and join in the celebration of donating 1 million meals and counting to Malawi children and their families.
