Special Dessert Supports The LGBTQ+ Community
SEATTLE (June 7, 2022) – MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC (“MOD Pizza”, “MOD” or the “Company”), the purpose-led, people-first, fast casual pizza pioneer, today released its new, limited-edition Pride Cake, a delicious vanilla cake with a creamy filling, covered in a vanilla frosting and adorned with rainbow sprinkles.
MOD’s latest Cake for Good will support two organizations strengthening the LGBTQ+ community: in the US, The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ young people and in Canada, the Victoria Pride Society.
The Pride Cake ($2.77-$3.02 USD and $4.47 CAN) is available now through July 31, 2022, or while supplies last, at all 500+ MOD Pizza locations system-wide*. For every Pride Cake sold, MOD will donate $0.25.
“As a people-first brand, we have a real commitment to contribute to a world that works for and includes everyone. We want our stores to be a place where everyone feels welcome – safe and inclusive gathering spots where people are treated with respect and dignity,” said Ally Svenson, MOD co-founder and protector of the purpose. “As we celebrate Pride Month, we’re proud to support The Trevor Project and Victoria Pride Society, both making important impacts towards a more welcoming, inclusive and loving world.”
The Trevor Project works to save young LGBTQ lives by providing free and confidential 24/7 phone lifeline, text, and chat services to LGBTQ youth in crisis. The organization also runs TrevorSpace, the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, and operates innovative education, research and advocacy programs. According to The Trevor Project’s 2022 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health, 45% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, and nearly 1 in 5 transgender and nonbinary youth attempted suicide. Their research also found that 60% of LGBTQ youth who wanted mental health care in the past year were not able to get it.
**The term “system-wide” refers to all company-operated and licensed store locations. The trademarks MOD, MOD Pizza, and the MOD Shield, are owned by MOD Super Fast Pizza, LLC.
