Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria Menlo Park Opening Benefits Food Bank

On Tuesday September 22nd, Amici's East Coast Pizzeria celebrated the opening of their Menlo Park location with a 'Charity Lunch' in support of the Food Bank.

Amici's staff were joined by 'celebrity servers' Brian Murphy, Paul McCaffrey and Dan Dibley, hosts of The Morning Show on KNBR-680, who showed off their restaurant skills and entertained customers.

The event was well supported by Menlo Park residents including Mayor Heyward Robinson, and Sports fans from around the Bay Area.

Lunch sales totaled $2,300, to which Amici's added a $1,000 tip on behalf of each of the 'celebrity servers' for a grand total of a $5,300 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank. This generous donation will provide 10,600 meals to people in need in our community.

Thanks to Amici’s and everyone who came out to enjoy a great lunch and support the Food Bank.
