MOD Pizza franchisees raised more than $400,000 to help feed hungry kids during its annual Spreading MODness Week last month, the company announced.

For every pizza MOD stores sold from Nov. 20-24, the company donated $1, with the goal of creating 1 million meals that will be distributed in local communities over the next 12 months.

Generosity Feeds, a non-profit committed to ending childhood hunger, will receive about $380,000 of the donation to help fund more than 30 meal-packing events across the country, MOD Pizza said in a press release.

Generosity Feeds and MOD will bring together communities to pack nutritious and compact meals designed to be distributed by school backpack programs and food banks. To date, MOD’s collaboration with Generosity Feeds has already provided nearly half a million meals across the U.S, the company said.

The remaining amount will be provided to community food banks and feeding programs that will also support MOD’s mission to change the startling statistics around childhood hunger. One in five children in the U.S. struggle with food insecurity.

“Our annual Spreading MODness Week is a time to shine a light on MOD’s purpose,” said Ally Svenson, MOD’s co-founder and Chief Purpose Officer. “We exist to serve people, and we work to positively impact as many as possible. Once again, we’re filled with gratitude for our customers and amazing MOD Squads who came together to help tackle food insecurity in a meaningful way.”

“It is so heartwarming and encouraging to see MOD’s purpose come to life using our platform of pizza to make a positive social impact,” Svenson added. “This is Spreading MODness in action.”
