Its a Personal Pan Pizza, I remember
It's pretty small in size. Not even the size of a small pizza by far.
Anyway, I think these people are just pissed off that people really don't care that big corporations are doing exactly what they were meant to do, so they try to convince the parents they are doing something evil instead.
These corporations are damned if they do and damned if they don't. If a corporation doesn't give money or free stuff, they aren't being active or helpful toward the community. They give free stuff or something and all the sudden they are buying people off and promoting the corruption of our youth. What utter BS.

is an excellent program in my opinion, which All of our children participated in.
? A free Personal Pan pizza per MONTH is promoting a junk food society ? For having read what 3-5 books(?), OUTSIDE of school/classwork.
Even though they have either graduated or are in advanced grades which don't offer such, ALL of our children STILL do the weekly library visit ... checking out and READING books.
How a MONTHLY reward can be deemed promotion of a fast/junk food society is beyond me. Especially a program specifically designed to promote expanding our youth's literary growth and/or intellectual horizons through READING. (?)
I'm certainly not a fan of Pizza Hut's menu items, a personal dislike, but ... damn ... why not just do away with any/all programs that promote literacy in our youth?
If the "reward" were a bag of sugar or a pound a fat they might have a point, but to condemn a MONTHLY award consisting of a free personal pan pizza, for having read several books, is quite ludicrous.
Just my two pence on the matter.

I bet if "the book" were to espouse alternate lifestyles, such as "My Two Dads", they would have no problem with it.

Besides, if a child doesn't have a proper diet it's the parents fault not the fast food industries. Take some responsibility people!
