TORONTO — To mark National Sandwich Day on Nov. 3, Subway Canada will donate a meal to Food Banks Canada for every sandwich purchased with a drink. In addition to donating a meal, participating sandwich shops will also give the purchaser a second sandwich of equal or lesser value for free.
Through this initiative, Subway will donate the equivalent of 303,030 meals to Food Banks Canada. The donation also marks the first national meal donation by Subway Canada.
“We’re moving into an incredibly busy period for food banks so this donation from Subway restaurants couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Pam Jolliffe, executive director, Food Banks Canada. “Our partnership with Subway is a huge opportunity for us to not only ensure our shelves can be stocked but also to drive awareness of the increasing need for support on a national scale.”
