TEXAS, USA — Subway and Feeding America have teamed up to provide up to 15 million meals to feed people in need across the country.

At Subway, with the purchase of every footlong sandwich through April 30 for takeout, catering and delivery, Subway will provide a meal to support Waco and Temple area Feeding America food banks.  

Feeding America predicted that food banks will need an additional estimated $1.4 billion over the next six months to feed people in need due to the COIVD-19 pandemic. Therefore, Subway and its guests are lending their support by simply ordering their favorite footlong from participating restaurants through the Subway app or by visiting Subway.com.

“Subway has always been a part of the community to provide delicious subs and a helping hand and we plan to continue to do just that during this time of hardship,” Subway’s North America President Trevor Haynes said. “From keeping our restaurants open and safe to providing better-for-you food options to our Franchise Owners dedicating their time and donating food, Subway is open to serve. And, we are proud to once again partner with Feeding America to help make sure our neighbors are getting the nutritious meals they need and deserve.” 

Along with keeping restaurants open and ready to serve, Subway Franchise Owners across the globe have stepped up in big ways in their local communities donating meals to those on the frontlines including healthcare workers and first responders, as well as donating meals to children who normally rely on school lunches.
