Boston Pizza

Since 2001, the Boston Pizza Foundation has raised and donated over $2.4 million to JDRF. The Boston Pizza Foundation helped establish the Islet Transplantation Protocol and supports many clinical trials at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton. They have made a million dollar commitment to JDRF by setting up the Boston Pizza Artificial Pancreas Fund. The Boston Pizza Artificial Pancreas Fund supports clinical trials that accelerate research on the artificial pancreas, a device which automatically dispenses insulin based on real-time changes in blood sugar levels. The Boston Pizza Foundation continues to support JDRF through programs like the Heart-Shaped Pizza sales on Valentine’s Day and the Boston Pizza Kids Card program. Don’t forget to order your Heart-Shaped Pizza this Valentine’s Day and support JDRF! For more information about the Boston Pizza Foundation, please visit
