Farmingdale, NY - January 12, 2016 - To assist in the fight against hunger on Long Island, Pizza Studio will be donating $2 to Island Harvest Food Bank for every pizza sold at its new Farmingdale location from January 15-17 in conjunction with the restaurant’s grand opening celebration. As part of its debut on Long Island, Pizza Studio has committed to partnering with the region’s leading hunger-relief organization to help provide the resources necessary to combat the chronic issue of food insecurity on Long Island. Pizza Studio is located at Republic Plaza, 901 Broadhollow Road in Farmingdale.
“Island Harvest welcomes Pizza Studio to Long Island and we are most grateful to have them support us in our efforts to help those Long Islanders who are faced with not having enough to eat every day,” said Randi Shubin Dresner, president and CEO, Island Harvest. “We wish them much success and we’re happy they’re on board to help us tackle this critical issue.’
Pizza Studio is a new, unique dining concept allowing diners to create their own pizzas by selecting among a variety of crusts, sauces and toppings of vegetables, meats, and cheeses. Then the employees assemble the personalized pizza in front of the customer. The pizzas are then cooked in about three minutes in a self-ventilating conveyor oven.

About Hunger on Long Island
Hunger is a state in which people do not get enough food to provide the nutrients for active and healthy lives. It can result from the recurrent and involuntary lack of access to food. More than 316,000 Long Islanders face the risk of hunger every day, according to Island Harvest Food Bank and Feeding America, a national hunger-relief organization. These are often hard-working adults, children, seniors and veterans who cannot always make ends meet and are often forced to go without food. Approximately 70,000 individuals seek food assistance in Nassau and Suffolk counties each week through soup kitchens, food pantries and other feeding programs served by Island Harvest.
