U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois spent time this week with Rosati's Pizza president Marla Topliff, employees from the brand and representatives from the nonprofit organization Cooking Matters, brainstorming ways to fight hunger.

According to The Courier-News, attendees from Rosati's committed to participate again in the No Kid Hungry campaign, which connects kids in need to nutritional programs. In 2013, more than 40 Rosati's units participated in Share Our Strength's Dine Out For No Kid Hungry campaign, a month-long initiative that raises money for the cause.

"Children in America are not getting enough food to get through a day of school," Topliff told the publication. "And when you send kids to school and they don't have enough to eat, they can't concentrate. There's no way for them to get through the day without being tired. This is a subject that needs to have more public awareness."

Duckworth, who represents the 8th Congressional District, said she hopes to "bring people to the table" to help solve the issue of hunger.
