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.

    There are so many heroes to celebreat during the holiday season! We were inspired to deliver pizzas on Thursday, December 12, 2013 to our neighbors, Boulder Fire Station #3. This station is within a few blocks of our Boulder 29th Street Mall. The four firefighters had just spent 2 hours dive training, and they were ready to enjoy CPK -- and enjoy it they did!
