As the UK enters its coldest week in five years a restaurant chain has announced it will feed the homeless for free for the next seven days. Franco Manca, which has 41 restaurants across the country, has pledged to give away 28,700 pizzas.
The pizzeria is appealing for food banks, charities and shelters to contact them to organise distribution to rough sleepers. A Franco Manca spokesman said: ‘With snow already falling and weather warnings rife, the UK is bracing itself for the coldest week so help fight the chill, our team want to help those most in need by offering free pizza for the duration of the week. ‘For people who are sleeping rough on the streets, struggling to cope with freezing temperatures is made even harder by constant hunger.’
‘Also we want UK pizza fans to share their recommendations for pizza donations via the same email address or on social @francomancapizz.’
