Program Overview

Teaming Up Against Hunger presented by Sal’s Pizza

Teaming Up Against Hunger presented by Sal’s Pizza challenges local 4th and 5th graders to educate themselves on the plaguing social issue of hunger.

Students at partnering schools are tasked with educating themselves on hunger and working with their classmates to create a Public Service Announcement (PSA) script designed to motivate viewers to register for Project Bread’s annual Walk for Hunger.

The Celtics return to the participating school a few weeks after program launch with a movie production company to shoot the students’ PSA’s. The video PSA’s are then premiered at an all-school pep rally where students from the 4th and 5th grade present Project Bread with a “big check” donation on behalf of the Boston Celtics and Sal’s Pizza.
