MOD PIZZA SEEKS VOLUNTEERS TO ATTEMPT GUINESS WORLD RECORD FOR “MOST HUNGER RELIEF PACKAGES ASSEMBLED SIMULTANEOUSLY”
TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants and its 11 metro Detroit MOD Pizza restaurants, is seeking 150 volunteers for a meal packaging event in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most hunger relief packages assembled simultaneously on Saturday, June 9.
The event will take place at 10 a.m. at McGregor Elementary, located at 1101 1st St. in Rochester. In partnership with Generosity Feeds, an organization working to feed hungry children in every county across America, TSFR and MOD Pizza will attempt to package 10,700 meals created by a culinary chef with U.S. tastes and nutritional needs in mind. The meals will be donated to local children and families in need. Families are welcome to volunteer (including kids 4 years of age or older). Monetary donations can also be made to the cause and will be used to purchase additional meals for packaging. Those interested in registering to volunteer or learning more can visit GenerosityFeedsRochester.org.
At MOD Pizza, we are committed to being an impactful neighbor and Spreading MODness, and we’re excited to extend that opportunity to those in our community with this meal packaging event. With the help of our community and Generosity Feeds, we have raised enough money to package 10,700 meals to benefit children and families in need, making a significant positive impact in the lives of children throughout metro Detroit. We hope the community will join us for this event to make a difference in our community, and hopefully achieve a Guinness World Record.
The event comes as a result of TSFR’s MOD Pizza Spreading MODness campaign in 2017, a week-long event in which the company and its restaurants focus on supporting at-risk youth and families. During the week of Nov. 21-26, 2017, each Michigan MOD Pizza restaurant donated $1 for every pizza sold to Generosity Feeds. The funds raised were then used to purchase compact and light unique, nutritious meals.
“One in five children in the U.S. go hungry every day – and many of these children don’t know where their next meal will come from. Like MOD, we have discovered that the value of decreasing food insecurity is more than just giving people food – it involves mobilizing people into a lifestyle of generosity,” said Ron Klabunde, founder and CEO of Generosity Feeds. “We are excited to work with TSFR and MOD Pizza to stop hunger and start hope in metro Detroit. Because of MOD’s engagement and donation, we are able to create nutritionally balanced and filling meals that will be taken home in backpacks for children and their families.”
