World Sandwich Day fights world hunger
World Sandwich Day is being celebrated in Te Puke with a fundraising event to help fight hunger.
Subway has teamed up with leading food relief charity KiwiHarvest and every guest who visits the Te Puke store 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 supply insecurity.
Each donation on Friday, November 2, marking World Sandwich Day, would be captured on the Subway Live Feed digital tracker, and all are invited to follow the progress via www.SubwayLiveFeed.co.nz.
“We certainly appreciate the support 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, November 2 in celebration of World Sandwich Day in support of fighting hunger across the country,” said Geoff Cockerill, Subway Australia and New Zealand country director.
Together with KiwiHarvest, Subway NZ aims to donate more than 100,000 meals this year, making a difference to school children and people in need. About KiwiHarvest
