TORONTO — As part of Subway Canada’s Never-Miss-Lunchinitiative, in partnership with Food Banks Canada, $1 from every order placed through the Subway app from Nov. 1 until Nov. 21, 2021 will help feed children in need across the country.
“Community needs differ across the country due to cultural and regional dietary differences. Grants provided to Food Banks Canada from the Subway Never-Miss-LunchProgram allow local organizations to purchase fresh food that meets the dietary needs of our youth,” says David Armour, interim CEO for Food Banks Canada. “We’re very grateful for supportive partners like Subway Canada who are helping us provide fresh resources to those who need it most.”
In the last two years, 280,000 food packs were distributed to organizations, such as Edmonton’s Food Bank, Windsor’s UHC – Hub of Opportunities, Moisson Outaouais and Feed Nova Scotia, from the Never Miss Lunch grants.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen a rapid increase in those utilizing our food banks,” says June Muir, CEO of UHC – Hub of Opportunities. “The COVID-19 pandemic has left individuals and their families grasping for support. With over 7,000 children throughout Windsor-Tecumseh who are experiencing food insecurity, support from partners like Subway are imperative to ensure kids are receiving fresh, nutritional options.”
