Sub­way in fight against hunger

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram’s Sub­way fed 2750 meals to peo­ple in need through Food­bank Aus­tralia as a re­sult of its Live Feed event on Novem­ber 3.

More than 287 000 meals were do­nated across the na­tion on World Sand­wich Day, and more than 13.3 mil­lion meals across the globe, with Sub­way shops in more than 60 coun­tries around the world.

Vic­to­ri­ans sup­ported the global ini­tia­tive by buy­ing a sub, salad or wrap on the day and join­ing in the cel­e­bra­tions to help raise im­por­tant funds for Aus­tralia’s lead­ing hunger or­gan­i­sa­tion, Food­bank Aus­tralia.

Sub­way Co­bram fran­chisee Chris Si­mon thanked cus­tomers and her ‘‘sand­wich artists’’ for get­ting be­hind the global fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive.

‘‘Our aim of help­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple in need would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and our sand­wich artists across she said.

‘‘Thank you to ev­ery­one that pur­chased a sub, salad or wrap on the day to fight hunger.’’

Food­bank Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Bri­anna Casey said she was de­lighted to be part of Sub­way’s in­au­gu­ral Live Feed.

‘‘End­ing hunger glob­ally is a mon­u­men­tal task, but cam­paigns like this help us not only shine a spot­light on the is­sue, but also do some­thing about it,’’ she said.

‘‘We were thrilled to be a part of Sub­way’s ini­tia­tive to help us fight hunger in Aus­tralia.

‘‘We want to ex­tend our thanks to ev­ery­one who vis­ited their lo­cal Sub­way to raise hun­dreds of thou­sands of meals for Aus­tralians who strug­gle to put food on their plates for them­selves and their fam­i­lies.’’ Vic­to­ria,’’
