We are committed to doing good in the communities we serve and determined to make a real difference through FUNdraisers, In-kind Donations, and our CPK Foundation, which has donated more than $1 million to charity organizations.

Promoting positive change has inspired California Pizza Kitchen from the beginning. It is our hope that we can promote acts of kindness and inspire others to pay it forward by continuing to do good in the communities they live in, always striving to make it a little better.

  • "When I Grow Up" Party with Angels for Hearts

    Team Arden Fair (Sacramento, CA)

    Angels for Hearts was founded on the idea of making sure that pediatric heart patients maintain some sense of normalcy of being a kid while having pediatric heart issues and growing up in hospital settings. They strive to help these children remember that first and foremost they are kids. We partnered with them for the annual event, and celebrated with pizza box painting and pizza dough tossing! Annabelle Lee, a young survivor of heart disease, shows off her excitement for winning 2nd place in the CPK Pizza Box Painting Contest.
