MOD Pizza today is kicking off its annual week of ‘‘Spreading MODness,’’ with the goal of providing half a million meals to children who struggle with hunger. For every MOD and Mega-size pizza sold through Nov. 26, MOD will donate $1 – which, in turn, will be used to create one meal through MOD’s partnership with Generosity Feeds, a non-profit committed to ending childhood hunger. The meals will be distributed through food pantries and school backpack programs in the 26 states where MOD operates.
BBX Capital, the exclusive franchisee of the MOD Pizza brand for the state of Florida, will also be Spreading MODness at its recently opened MOD Pizza location in Parkland by donating $1.00 from every pizza sold during that period.
“By simply enjoying a pizza during this week, our customers will be providing a meal to a hungry child – and joining MOD in the ‘ripple effect’ of doing the right thing – we call this Spreading MODness and are excited to bring this concept to Florida,” said Brick Kerge, vice president of operations for MOD Pizza Florida. “Our hope is that in partnership with Generosity Feeds, we can inspire and mobilize our MOD Squads and their communities to come together and tackle this social crisis. Along with the incredible pizza, the MOD brand is a purpose led organization that is committed to making a positive impact on as many lives as possible, by offering well-paying jobs, career development opportunities, and partnering with local non-profits that support the community.”
The 2,400-square-foot Parkland MOD Pizza store includes a large outdoor patio, original artwork and hand painted mural by local South Florida artist Ruben Ubiera and MOD’s signature “Wall of Fame,” a photo collage that pays homage to the local community and people from the MOD journey.
