Carpinteria Family School students will benefit from the Giovanni pizza booth at Avofest.

There’ll be local pizza available on the strip at California Avocado Festival, and anyone purchasing the slices provided by Giovanni’s will support school supplies and programs at Carpinteria Family School. Shawn Noormand, owner of Giovanni’s Pizza, said it was an easy choice to supply the discounted pizza to the school. “It’s just the right thing to do,” he said. He will also provide an avocado sauce to go with a margarita pizza special for Avofest. Giovanni’s, which has been in Carpinteria for 22 years, also supports the Summer Reading Program at Carpinteria High School with free pizzas for kids who read the required number of books through the program. Carpinteria Family School’s pizza booth will be open throughout the weekend.
