This year, on Friday 2 November, Subway restaurants around Australia are coming together to fight food insecurity in celebration of World Sandwich Day. Subway invites the Moreton Bay community to join its largest fundraising event of the year, the Subway Live Feed; an initiative to help fight world hunger and feed Aussies in need.
In partnership with leading food relief organisation, Foodbank, every guest who visits a participating [AREA] Subway restaurant and purchases a sub, salad or wrap on November 2 will get one free, and Subway will donate the cost of a meal through Foodbank to those seeking hunger relief.
In 2017 on World Sandwich Day, 13 million meals were donated globally, and 280,000 meals were donated in Australia alone, directly helping communities who experience food insecurity and anxiety, including more than 2,400 charities and 1,750 schools.
Each donation on Friday 2 November, in celebration of World Sandwich Day, will be captured on the Subway Live Feed digital tracker, and guests are invited to follow the progress via www.SubwayLiveFeed.com.au.
Starting out as a fun way to celebrate the humble sandwich last year, World Sandwich Day has become a key date in the Subway calendar, rallying Australians’ love for sandwiches to support a positive cause. Participating Moreton Bay Subway restaurants is inviting all locals to come down and join in the celebrations to make a difference to the lives of fellow Australians.
“We certainly appreciate the support that we receive from our local communities in shining a spotlight on such an important cause. We hope to see our guests join us for a delicious sub on Friday 2 November in celebration of World Sandwich Day and help us to fight hunger across the country,” said Geoff Cockerill, Country Director for Subway Australia and New Zealand.
Together with Foodbank, Subway Australia aims to donate more than 300,000 meals this year, making a difference to school children, families experiencing food scarcity, and people in need, and Subway restaurants in Moreton Bay need your support.
