Sub­way Tararua joins hunger fight


Sub­way Tararua is invit­ing the com­mu­nity to join its largest fundrais­ing event of the year, the Sub­way Live Feed — an ini­tia­tive to help fight world hunger and feed Kiwis in need.

Sub­way restau­rants around New Zealand are com­ing to­gether to fight food in­se­cu­rity in cel­e­bra­tion of World Sand­wich Day on Fri­day Novem­ber 2.

In part­ner­ship with lead­ing food relief char­ity, Ki­wiHar­vest, ev­ery per­son who vis­its Sub­way Tararua and pur­chases a sub, salad or wrap, gets an­other one free, and Sub­way will do­nate the cost of a meal through Ki­wiHar­vest to those seek­ing hunger relief.

In 2017 on World Sand­wich Day, 13 mil­lion meals were do­nated glob­ally, and 90,000 meals were do­nated in New Zealand alone, with Ki­wiHar­vest help­ing com­mu­ni­ties who ex­pe­ri­ence food in­se­cu­rity and anx­i­ety.

Each do­na­tion on Fri­day in cel­e­bra­tion of World Sand­wich Day will be cap­tured on the Sub­way Live Feed dig­i­tal tracker, and all are in­vited to fol­low the progress via www.Sub­

Start­ing out as a fun way to cel­e­brate the hum­ble sand­wich last year, World Sand­wich Day has be­come a key date in the Sub­way calendar, ded­i­cat­ing to feed­ing lo­cal New Zealand com­mu­ni­ties in need. Sub­way Tararua Dis­trict is invit­ing every­one to come down and join in the cel­e­bra­tions to make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of fel­low Kiwis.

“We cer­tainly ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port that we re­ceive from the lo­cal com­mu­nity in shin­ing the spot­light on such an im­por­tant cause. We hope to see our guests join us for a de­li­cious Sub on Fri­day 2 Novem­ber in cel­e­bra­tion of World Sand­wich Day fight­ing hunger across the coun­try,” said Geoff Cock­er­ill, Sub­way Aus­tralia and New Zealand Coun­try Di­rec­tor.

To­gether with Ki­wiHar­vest, Sub­way New Zealand aims to do­nate more than 100,000 meals this year, mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to school chil­dren, fam­i­lies ex­pe­ri­enc­ing food scarcity and peo­ple in need.

Dan­nevirke pro­pri­etors Anne and Dave Broadley say they are happy to par­tic­i­pate.

Last year they sold over 400 meals on Sand­wich Day — dou­ble what they do on the av­er­age day.
