Subway Canada Launches Fifth-Annual Never Miss Lunch Campaign


TORONTO — Subway Canada is launching its milestone fifth-annual Never Miss Lunch donation day on June 21, in partnership with Food Banks Canada, committing its largest donation yet to help provide 185,000 packs this year. For each footlong sold, $1 will support hunger relief initiatives for kids in more than 200 communities from coast to coast. In 2022, the program delivered 175,000 healthy food packs.

To bolster awareness around childhood food insecurity in Canada, Subway has launched its Never Miss Lunch Design Contest. The competition invites Canadians of all ages and skill sets to submit drawings to have the chance for their original artwork to be featured on Subway Canada’s next sandwich wrap nationwide and the chance to win one of the $500 Subway gift card prizes. The inspiration for designs is to answer the question: what’s the best part about being a kid?

“Almost six million people in Canada lived in food insecure households in 2020. Hundreds of thousands more are now relying on Canada’s food banks this year. These are numbers almost too big to grasp,” says Kirstin Beardsley, CEO, Food Banks Canada. “This is why we’re grateful for loyal partners like Subway Canada who are doing their part to raise awareness of child food insecurity in Canada with the Never Miss Lunch campaign. We appreciate being able to work together and support children in communities that are most vulnerable, because no one should have to face hunger alone.”

“We’re humbled to have the overwhelming support of our franchisees who are celebrating this program in their restaurants across Canada. They are all more passionate than ever to be rallying together to continue to support their communities and to ensure kids have the nutrition they need,” says Doug Fry, Canadian Managing Director, Subway Canada. “This year marks a major milestone of our Never Miss Lunch program – we’re honoured to celebrate five years of partnership with Food Banks Canada, and we’re proud to be increasing and expanding our contributions.”
