Local Subway restaurants are now offering wholesale grocery supplies for purchase during the COVID-19 pandemic, including breads, lunch meats, a variety of proteins, cheeses, vegetables, sauces, soups, egg patties and snacks.

Orders can be placed at local restaurants via for pickup and delivery, and visitors can also donate a sandwich to first responders in their shopping carts, according to Subway. In addition, the site provides chef’s recipes, such as Chili Willy’s Steak Fajitas and the Qurantuna Melt, all made from available ingredients complete with a corresponding Subway shopping list and chef tips.

Participating restaurants include the locations in San Mateo at 530 S. Norfolk St., Belmont at 1073 Alameda De Las Pulgas, and San Carlos at 744 El Camino Real.

“We are so proud to be able to offer these expanded options to our neighbors in this challenging time,” said Akki Patel, president of Letap Group and a Development Agent for Subway in northern California. “Whether we’re providing an alternative to your weekly grocery run, a direct donation service to thank our front-line essential workers or a fast, easy and healthy option for dinner tonight, Subway is here for you. It’s what good neighbors do.”

On a national level, Subway recently announced its new nationwide partnership with nonprofit Feeding America, the national network of food banks. From now until the end of April, each foot-long purchased at any of its locations, Subway is donating one meal to Feeding America.
