MOD Pizza Dedicates Thanksgiving Week to Tackling World Hunger

In a collaboration with nonprofit Generosity Feeds, MOD will donate proceeds from the week to create healthy meals for hungry kids.




As part of the partnership between MOD Pizza and Generosity Feeds, more than 1,000 volunteers helped pack 60,000 meals for hungry children in the Los Angeles area earlier this year.

MOD Pizza will be “Spreading MODness” throughout the week of Thanksgiving as part of its commitment to tackle childhood hunger in the U.S.

From Nov. 20-24, MOD, which recently announced the upcoming opening of its 400th location in Kalispell, Montana, will donate $1 from every MOD- or Mega-size pizza sold at its company-owned locations to help create a meal for a hungry child. In collaboration with Generosity Feeds, MOD’s goal is to help distribute one million meals throughout the next year.

“This is a special week for MOD—we are celebrating the opening of our 400th location and our 10th birthday,” said MOD co-founder and CEO Scott Svenson. “Sharing this celebration with the week of Thanksgiving is so fitting for MOD, as giving thanks and embracing the power of gratitude is one of our core beliefs. What we are most grateful for are the over 8,000 passionate, hard-working MOD Squaders system-wide, spread across 28 states and the UK. Together, we have built an industry-leading business that has been a force for good in the lives of our people and in the communities we serve. As we reflect on our first 10 years, we are more motivated than ever by the potential of MOD.”

Through its collaboration with Generosity Feeds, a non-profit committed to ending childhood hunger, MOD provides funding for meal-packing events across the country. The meals of beans and rice are nutritious, filling and compact enough to go home from school in a child’s backpack. To date, MOD’s partnership has provided more than half a million meals in communities across the U.S. It is expected that next week’s “Spreading MODness” efforts will help create a million meals in 2019.

Ally Svenson, MOD’s Chief Purpose Officer, adds, “Even though we’ve experienced a lot of growth, our purpose remains unchanged—MOD exists to serve people, and we do this by Spreading MODness. We’ve learned that meaningful impacts can be made in many ways—from hiring people with barriers to employment to tackling food insecurity in our communities. When the staggering statistics of childhood hunger came to our attention a few years ago, we knew we needed to help, and this collaboration is so powerful—a non-profit with the head of a business, and a business with the heart of a non-profit. The best birthday gift we can receive is the chance to bring MOD’s purpose to life, celebrating how the platform of business can truly change lives.”
