Eastern Reporter - - Let's Eat -

A BASSENDEAN busi­ness served up sand­wiches to 385 cus­tomers in a bid to fight hunger glob­ally on World Sand­wich Day on Novem­ber 3.

Sub­way Bassendean, along­side other fran­chises, helped do­nate 287,982 meals to peo­ple in need through Food­bank as part of Sub­way’s Live Feed ini­tia­tive. Former West Coast Ea­gles pre­mier­ship star An­drew Em­b­ley made an ap­pear­ance at the event.

Food­bank Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive Bri­anna Casey said 15 per cent of the Aus­tralian pop­u­la­tion had ex­pe­ri­enced food in­se­cu­rity in the past 12 months.
