Feed Ki­wis in need

Waipa Post - - News -

Good news, sand­wich lovers — Sub­way is pre­par­ing for World Sand­wich Day to help feed New Zealan­ders in need.

Ev­ery per­son who vis­its a Sub­way restau­rant and pur­chases a sub, salad or wrap on Fri­day, Novem­ber 2 will get one free.

Sub­way will do­nate the cost of a meal through food res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tion Ki­wiHar­vest to those seek­ing hunger re­lief.

This is the sec­ond year Sub­way New Zealand has part­nered with Ki­wiHar­vest.

Each month, Ki­wiHar­vest col­lects more than 65,000kg of sur­plus food from su­per­mar­kets, whole­salers, grow­ers, man­u­fac­tur­ers, pro­duc­ers, mar­kets, cafes, restau­rants and ho­tels and dis­trib­utes it to over 220 New Zealand food­banks and char­i­ties, in­clud­ing Women’s Refuge.

“The Sub­way Live Feed ini­tia­tive is one that ev­ery Kiwi can get be­hind,” Sub­way busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager Mark Hawes says.

“It’s a way we can all make a di­rect im­pact to chil­dren, re­gional com­mu­ni­ties and oth­ers ex­pe­ri­enc­ing hard­ships which lead to food poverty.”

Last year Ki­wis across New Zealand joined to­gether to raise the equiv­a­lent of 90,000 meals for those in need.

Do­na­tions will be cap­tured on the Sub­way Live Feed dig­i­tal tracker and guests are in­vited to fol­low the progress at sub­waylive­feed.co.nz
