Feeding the hungry on World Sandwich Day
Subway is again partnering with Kiwiharvest to help fight food poverty.
The Hamilton community is invited to join in the celebrations on Friday November 2, with every customer who visits Subway Hamilton East and purchases a sub, salad or wrap on the day, getting another one free. On the day, Subway will donate the cost of a meal to Kiwiharvest to those seeking hunger relief.
Each month across New Zealand, including Hamilton, 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 charities including Women’s Refuge and local community foodbanks.
“The Subway Live Feed initiative is one that every Kiwi can get behind. It’s a way we can all make a direct impact to children, regional communities and others experiencing hardships which lead to food poverty,” said Subway business development manager Mark Hawes.
“We are powered by the positivity of people who want to make a difference,” CEO of Kiwiharvest, Deborah Manning said. Last year Kiwis raised the equivalent of 90,000 meals for those in need. This year, they are aiming for 100,000.
