During September, your meal at a Subway restaurant will significantly boost your local food bank’s efforts to feed people in need.

In recognition of Hunger Action Month, Subway is hosting its Feeding the Need initiative that aims to deliver 200,000 meals to food banks throughout the Bay Area in September, including Second Harvest of Silicon Valley.

As part of the Feeding the Need campaign, when Subway guests purchase a sub, salad or wrap with any drink and chips or two cookies, their purchase will help feed people in their community. How? For every two meals purchased at participating restaurants, Subway restaurants will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal.

According to Feeding America, a network of over 200 U.S. food banks, every dollar donated provides at least 10 meals to families in need.

“The funds raised through this campaign will help local food banks better serve children and families who may not know where they will find their next meal,” says Nancy Curby, senior vice president, corporate partnerships at Feeding America.

Akki Patel, CEO of Letap Group, which owns 61 franchise restaurants and represents 900 restaurants as a local franchisor for Subway, said the program exemplifies the restaurant’s reputation as family-run, neighborhood-serving businesses.

“We are delighted to be empowering each of our franchises to partner with their loyal customers to make a difference right in their own neighborhood through Feeding America’s network of local food banks,” Patel said.
