Subway in fight against hunger
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,’’
