This November, Subway Canada’s Never Miss Lunch throughout is donating $1 from every Subway app and online order, contributing to Food Banks Canada's goal of distributing 185,000 food packs to kids across 190 Canadian communities.
This is the fifth consecutive year of the program that aims to assist Food Banks Canada in helping children experience food insecurity in Canada.
“Despite continued low unemployment rates, food bank visits are at an all-time high,” says Kirstin Beardsley, chief executive officer of Food Banks Canada. “We are seeing more employed parents visiting food banks than ever. This makes Subway Canada's Never Miss Lunch initiative even more vital in raising awareness around child food insecurity across Canada. We are thankful to work with loyal partners, like Subway, in helping us get one step closer to a future where no one goes hungry.”
“Every child deserves access to fresh and nutritious food, making the continued support from our franchisees around the Never Miss Lunch program invaluable to their communities in which we live and work," adds Douglas Fry, Subway president, North America. “Over the past five years, we're thrilled to have helped Food Banks Canada deliver 740,000 food packs to more than 190 communities across Canada.”
