GIVING BACK | MOD Pizza Donating $50K In Memory of Local Teen Suicide Victim


NAMED AFTER ISAAC PEDLEY OF NAPERVILLE WHO TOOK HIS OWN LIFE IN APRIL

Today, MOD PIzza introduced their very first “Impact Pizza” — Isaac.

In partnership with The Jed Foundation - JED, this special pizza will shine a light on mental health and teen suicide. 🧡🍕 The "Impact Pizza" is named after Isaac, a local teen from Naperville who took his life last April.

“MOD was Isaac’s happy place. A place where he felt loved and accepted, without question. A place where, when I knew he was there, I could exhale knowing he was in a good place,” wrote Jenn Pedley, Isaac’s mother.

In the United States, suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-35. At MOD, this was made personal by the story of a boy, Isaac, and his relationship with a very special MOD Squad in Naperville. This relationship is the inspiration for a new pizza and a partnership the company believes will make a powerful impact.

MOD will donate $50,000 to support JED programs & help connect its customers to mental health resources in their communities. Get the full story behind Isaac at modpizza.com/Isaac
