‘Feed the Hungry’— an event celebrating six months of C’Zar
C'Zar marked its 6-month anniversary by organising an event on 12 September, 2021, called 'Feed the Hungry.' The purpose was to feed high-quality food to underprivileged children. A total of 109 children from Korail slum area were provided food on the day of the event.
One of C'Zar's specialties is their 5-metre pizza, the first of its kind in Bangladesh, which gained immense popularity among customers, food bloggers and critics. They wanted to share their specialty with less fortunate children of the city and spread happiness among them, if even for a day.
''We have seen kids curiously stare at our metre-long pizzas while delivering. However, they could only look as the price was too much for them to afford. Upon completing six months as a successful pizzeria, we decided to feed these underprivileged children with the same quality of ingredients we use to treat our premium customer base. We used cheese from Australia and the base of the pizza was made with Italian San Marzano tomatoes. We wanted to serve the most special pizza to these little angels,'' said Sifat Siddique, Managing Director of C'Zar Foods Pvt Ltd.
Keeping in mind that most of these children fail to get a well-balanced regular diet, C'Zar ensured that the meal they were providing the children was wholesome. A nutritionist was consulted to make sure the meal contained everything a child needs in a day. The pizza had extra protein and vegetables. Special focus was given to ensure the meal had vitamin C and B12 as well as beta-carotene, because many of the children were malnourished. The children were given chocolates and drinks as well.
The day was a one filled with joy and laughter from the children, not because of the mouth-watering food they got to eat but also for the kind and loving interaction they experienced from C'Zar.
