TORONTO — Subway Canada sandwich shop owners will donate and deliver 2,400 meals a day directly into the wildfire crisis zone, along with their supply chain partners, Sysco, Air Marine Cargo, Taylor Farms, Aryzta and Sofina Foods.
“Our hearts go out to all the residents and relief workers in Fort McMurray and surrounding area, including those that are part of the Subway family,” sys Kathleen Bell, director of National Marketing, Subway Restaurants Canada. “Our franchisees right across Canada are heartbroken and wanted to do something to help. In fact, Alberta franchisee partners, Paul Sarlis and Mike Pilz, will be personally driving the refrigerated trucks into the crisis zone.”
To help bridge the gap while teams mobilized, the local Subway Restaurant franchisees also granted the first responders access to one of the closed Fort McMurray Subway to retrieve food for the crews until deliveries are able to be made.
