When the pandemic hit, Italian Centre Shop‘s Gino Marghella and BONAFIDE put our heads together about how we could tweak the Shop’s sponsorship with the Calgary Flames (which included in-arena assets no longer viable) to align with our existing efforts tackling food security.

The Flames’ collaborative nature led us to a holiday fundraiser with former team captain Mark Giordano and his wife Lauren to make sure families had Christmas dinner and a program focused on getting our favourite sandwiches into schools with hungry kids – Panini 4 Bambini!

It was so fun to bring a few of our pals along for the fun this week…Check out the video with Harvey getting the word out here!

For every LEGENDARY signature Spinelli’s sandwich sold on March 7 & 26 (HOT is our fave – pop in air fryer at 400c for 5 min) Italian Centre Shop will donate one to local schools via EducationMatters!

Gino and the team at Italian Centre Shop YYC have their hearts set on sending 1000 panini to local school kids this year…WE CAN DO THIS!
