Zoë’s Story

Thank you for your order from Nonna’s Gourmet Foods. Our marinara and spicy marinara (arrabiata) sauces stem from our award-winning restaurant located in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee and a strong commitment to aid in the fight against childhood illnesses. My daughter, Zoë Marie Maggipinto, was diagnosed with Atypical Teratoid / Rhabdoid Tumor, a rare and aggressive tumor found in the cerebellum and spinal areas of children younger than three years old.zoe-photo

The excellent treatment she received from St. Jude Children’s Hospital has inspired me to continue the fight against AT/RT and other childhood illnesses by creating Nonna’s Gourmet Foods. Through the purchase of our gourmet marinara, spicy marinara (arrabiata) sauces and other gourmet products, you’re also helping children like Zoë. A full 100% of each purchase goes directly to organizations committed to fighting childhood illnesses and will aid in the fight against AT/RT and other life-threatening conditions so that future families might have even more of a fighting chance when their loved ones fall ill.

So while you’re enjoying the great taste of Nonna’s Gourmet Foods, enjoy the fact that you’re also helping to bring about a future where families who need help will receive it.

Thank you for helping us make miracles possible.
