THE COLONY, Texas — Pizza Inn Inc. is joining Dallas-based ABC television affiliate WFAA-TV, Channel 8 and Oprah's Big Give as they partner with the North Texas Food Bank in Operation North Texas, a program designed to benefit school-age children throughout the area.
The North Texas Food Bank's Food 4 Kids program supplies participating schools in the North Texas area with nutritious, kid-friendly self-serve food designed to fill a backpack during the school year. Children identified by school personnel as being at risk of hunger receive these backpacks each Friday.

Pizza Inn also will be accepting donations at its National Support Center in The Colony from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday during the same dates.
Pizza Inn is asking the public to donate peanut butter packaged in 18 oz. or smaller plastic jars requiring no refrigeration. Drop-off boxes will be available at both locations.
As part of its support of Oprah's Big Give: Operation North Texas, Pizza Inn will provide free pizza to volunteer workers at the WFAA/ Dallas Stars Peanut Butter drive-thru, scheduled from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on April 4 at the WFAA studio, located at Victory Plaza in front of the American Airlines Center.
