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.SubwayLiveFeed.co.nz
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.
