Supporting our seniors is as easy as (pizza) pie!


Post-Pesach, many of us crave chametz and carbs. What’s better than delicious pizza to satisfy that craving? Why not satisfy that craving and help Jewish Collaborative Services (JCS) at the same time?

Flatbread Pizza donates a portion of its proceeds to support worthwhile nonprofit organizations in the community and help individuals in need at the same time. On Tuesday, April 10, from 5-9 p.m., Flatbread Pizza, 16 Cushing St., Providence will donate $3.50 for each large flatbread and $1.75 for each small flatbread sold, so bring your hungry friends and family members!

For many years, Flatbread Pizza has hosted a Jewish Family Service of Rhode Island (JFS) night. Last year, funds from the evening’s proceeds enabled JFS to host a fall prevention program. This year,  Flatbread Pizza will donate a portion of its proceeds to both JFS and Jewish Seniors Agency (JSA), which formed JCS. Funds raised will be used to help support the Kosher Nutrition Program, which provides Kosher meals for older adults and those with physical disabilities through the “Kosher Senior Café” as well as Kosher “Meals on Wheels” to homebound seniors and disabled individuals.

When you dine on Flatbread Pizza’s pizza, which is made from local and organic ingredients it’s a win-win-win for all:  Flatbread Pizza gains new customers and welcomes back returning customers; JFS and JSA receive a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds to reduce hunger among those in need; and diners enjoy an evening of carbs and camaraderie, without being asked to make any donations!
