Our tradition of giving back to the community honors the generous spirit of our Italian immigrant founders, Gaspare and Providenza Fallucca. Palermo’s passionate approach to investing in the community encompasses a large number of charitable giving activities.
Our signature stewardship program, Easter Baskets for the Hungry, teams up Palermo’s employees with vendors, customers and Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force. Palermo’s Pizzaiolos solicit food and monetary donations, to provide hundreds of needy Milwaukee families with Easter dinner and enough food to feed a family of four for a week.
Palermo’s caring team members take great pride in the company’s social mission and in particular this program, which they created and have faithfully supported since its inception in 2008. Over the past 10 years, Easter Baskets for the Hungry has provided more than 500,000 pounds of food to needy families in the Milwaukee community. It is only one of many company-led efforts that address hunger in the community. Palermo’s regularly provides Pizzas to local food banks and other organizations to support their programs. In 2017, Palermo’s donated more than 500,000 Pizzas to feed the hungry.
