Play Nice, Win a Slice
Proving a kid’s favorite food can make the school playground a kinder, gentler place, US Foods has recognized zpizza, with stores in 15 states, as the first Ultimate Food Fanatic Award winner for its innovative anti-bullying program, called Nice zSlice. The artisan pizza chain launched Nice zSlice in recognition of October’s National Bullying Prevention Month. Teachers from more than 200 schools nationwide partnered with local zpizza restaurants, rewarding students who showed kindness to others with free slices of pizza. The company launched the program last year and distributed nearly 100,000 Nice zSlice awards to schools around the country. zpizza also hosted pizza parties and provided program materials for the educators, including posters that encourage positive behavior, parent communication letters and tips on how to address bullying and reward students in the classroom.
