MOD Pizza doubled down on its commitment to tackle childhood hunger by proclaiming, “This is Not a Pizza Place,” as they launch their annual Spreading MODness celebration. From November 18-22, 2019 will donate a portion of every pizza sold to help create meals for kids struggling with food insecurity—an issue that affects a staggering one in five nationwide.
As with previous years, MOD’s donation will help fuel community meal-packing events in partnership with Generosity Feeds and other non-profits dedicated to ending childhood hunger. These compact and nutritionally dense meals will be distributed through school backpack programs and food banks in MOD communities across the country. To date, MOD has helped pack and distribute over one million meals.
“We have built MOD with the intention to positively impact as many lives as possible. In fact, we often say that pizza is just a front for our true purpose. MOD exists to serve people and our Spreading MODness week highlights one of the many ways we work to be of service,” says Ally Svenson. “For our customers, it’s simple -- when they enjoy a pizza, they’ll also be helping to feed a child. This is the ripple effect of Spreading MODness.”
MOD’s 2019 Spreading MODness celebration kicked off with a “take over” of its Seattle flagship location, using a giant neon sign to announce This Is Not A Pizza Place. Once customers entered This Is Not A Door, they experienced an active meal-packing event taking place, demonstrating how MOD’s platform of pizza can make an impact in unexpected ways.
