PITTSBURGH, April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonni's Foods, North America's leading artisan baker, is bringing back a limited-edition Limoncello Pistachio Biscotti in celebration of its recent partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Liz Scott, Alex's mother and the Co-Executive Director of ALSF, is equally thrilled by the partnership. "It's amazing to see brands like Nonni's step up to help make a difference to families impacted by childhood cancer," she said. "We're excited to see what this year has in store and foster a partnership with a company such as Nonni's. The lemon-inspired flavors from Nonni's Biscotti are the perfect avenue to further share our mission across the U.S."
Nonni's limited-edition Limoncello Pistachio Biscotti and longtime fan favorite Limone Biscotti packaging will feature the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation logo in an effort to raise awareness for the organization. Both ALSF-inspired lemon treats can be found now at select retailers nationwide.

About Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra "Alex" Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million. Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada having raised more than $150 million so far, funding nearly 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
