MOD Pizza, this fact unfortunately became personal with the story of a boy, Isaac, who had a very special relationship with his local MOD Squad in Naperville, Illinois. This relationship is the inspiration for MOD’s newest seasonal pizza – The Isaac – and a partnership with The Jed Foundation (JED), a nonprofit organization that exists to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults.

MOD Pizza, is donating $50K to the JED Foundation to support Suicide Prevention in honor of Isaac Pedley, a teen from Naperville, IL, who unfortunately died by suicide last year. Isaac had a great relationship with staff at the Downtown Naperville MOD store, so after his death his mother sent the founders of MOD a heartfelt letter, telling Isaac’s story and the impact the store had on him.
