SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 24, 2021--

MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC (“MOD Pizza”, “MOD” or the “Company”), the purpose-led and people-first pioneer of the fast casual pizza category, today kicked off its annual Spreading MODness campaign with its new “MODness Meal” – a limited-time meal bundle to help fight hunger. With an estimated 38 million Americans struggling with food insecurity – including nearly 12 million children and 5.2 million seniors – the MODness Meal supports Feeding America and MOD’s ongoing commitment to make a positive impact in the communities they serve. The MODness Meal is available now through December 31, 2021, in-store, online and via the MOD Rewards app at all 500+ MOD locations system-wide**.

The MODness Meal: Making A Difference, One Meal At A Time

The MODness Meal includes any MOD-size pizza or salad, a Coca-Cola beverage, plus a $1 donation to Feeding America. Not only is this a good deal for customers - it is a good deed for MOD’s local communities. Every meal sold will help provide 10 meals to people in need, allowing customers to make a meaningful impact by simply enjoying MOD.

Spreading MODness, MOD’s Annual Birthday Celebration

Since 2013, MOD has celebrated its birthday by Spreading MODness, a time when the brand shines a light on its purpose – doing the right thing for their Squads and communities.

Feeding America – Magnifying MOD’s Purpose and Maximizing Impact

This year, through a new partnership with Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the United States, MOD has committed to helping provide a minimum of 1.5 million meals to local communities - with a goal of reaching 2.5 million meals. Feeding America serves nearly every community in the U.S. and an estimated 1 in 8 Americans, providing more than 6 billion meals in 2020.

“Simply put, no one should go hungry, ever,” said Ally Svenson, MOD co-founder and chief purpose officer. “We’ve been working for over ten years to help fight food insecurity, and, sadly, the pandemic has exacerbated the issue. We’re proud to partner with Feeding America, who, through their well-established network of local food banks and incredibly efficient distribution system, will allow us to help increase food access to people facing hunger in communities where MOD has a presence. Like MOD, they believe that strong local connections create resilient and healthy communities.”

“We know how important access to nutritious food is for families in need, especially during the holiday season,” said Lauren Biedron, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America. “We are grateful to MOD Pizza for their commitment to help end hunger.”
