Free Lemon Ice for Lexington

Fazoli's Thanks Those Who Have Helped Children in Need

LEXINGTON, KY, July 24, 2012 — Summer is a time when childhood hunger is the greatest.   To help address the more than 16 million American children at risk of hunger, Fazoli’s and Feed The Children, a non-profit hunger relief organization, partnered to create the Breadstick Tour. Lexington was among the first cities on the tour, raising thousands for the cause.  Now Fazoli’s wants to thank everyone who supported the fundraising efforts.  Between now and August 10, visit any Fazoli’s in the Lexington area and say that you support Feed The Children, and you will receive a Free Lemon Ice with any entrée purchase. 

Fazoli’s has handed out more than 77,000 breadsticks and has raised over $20,000 so far along the tour route.  And it’s not too late to donate.  The fundraising drive will continue until August 14.  Anyone making a $1 donation at any participating Fazoli’s restaurant will receive a coupon for $5 off any Family Meal purchase. 

The tour is at its midway point across the country, and is now in Colorado Springs.  It will then head to Denver, Lincoln, Omaha, Des Moines, Madison, and Green Bay.  It will finish up in South Bend on August 14.  To learn more about the tour, visit the Fazoli’s Facebook site at
