Be My Eyes is expanding its specialized help offering this year – and we’re proud to announce that this summer we are adding food and beverage support to the app, starting with the iconic Italian staple on everyone’s shelf: Barilla pasta and sauce.

Established in Italy in 1877, Barilla is the world’s most recognizable pasta. And now, you can learn from the best by connecting with Barilla through Be My Eyes. From cooking the perfect al dente pasta to finding a new, exciting recipe, the Barilla team is ready to answer queries from blind and low-vision Be My Eyes users.

If you’re located in the US, you can connect with the Barilla team by accessing the Specialized Help menu in the Be My Eyes app, and locate Barilla in the ‘Food & Beverages’ category. Their team of ‘Pasta Professionals’ are ready to answer Be My Eyes calls on Monday to Friday, noon to 4PM CST.

Your long-awaited trip to Italy might still be around the corner, but with Barilla you can still enjoy authentic Italian pasta and sauce from the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re a pasta novice or a cooking enthusiast, pasta dishes are always an easy, nutritious and delicious dinner option — and with Barilla on Be My Eyes, it simply can’t get easier to enjoy a proper Italian meal.
