SUBWAY is giving back on National Sandwich Day

Nov 2 2016, 4:14 pm

SUBWAY Canada is celebrating National Sandwich Day by providing lunch for residents in the Downtown Eastside on November 3.

This is the fifth year SUBWAY will be giving out fresh food in Oppenheimer Park. Local SUBWAY owners and employees will be providing sandwiches, soup, cookies, water, and coffee to 800 residents of the Downtown Eastside who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.

This event is in association with a national SUBWAY campaign designed to help all Canadians in need get enough to eat.

On November 3, for every sandwich purchased with a drink, SUBWAY will donate one meal to Food Banks Canada to be distributed across the country. Plus, you’ll also get a free sandwich to share with one of your friends.

The campaign continues after November 3 with an in-restaurant donation program supporting local BC communities.

You can choose to add a $1 donation to your SUBWAY sandwich purchase until November 30, and SUBWAY will give that donation to your local food bank.

Cash donations like this mean local food banks can purchase fresh fruit, vegetables, and protein and distribute it to families in need – so they can make more nutritious meals for themselves.

Last year SUBWAY restaurants in BC raised $40,000 from its National Sandwich Day campaign, and its hoping to exceed that amount this year.

So what are you waiting for? Head to a SUBWAY and help other British Columbians get enough to eat.
