The Feild­ing com­mu­nity turned out on Fri­day for World Sand­wich Day and to share in a 30-foot [9m] long salad-filled sand­wich.

Feild­ing Sub­way’s Dave Moar said a free Sub­way sand­wich was given for ev­ery Sub­way sold, and the world­wide chain do­nated a meal to char­ity.

“Last year Sub­way gave away five mil­lion meals world­wide and over $90,000 was do­nated to Kiwi Har­vest in New Zealand.

“We’d like to get to $100,000 this year,” Dave said.

Sub­way man­ager Katie Pf­ef­fer­ley said Feild­ing con­trib­uted 1148 Sub­way meals to­ward Kiwi Har­vest.

Feild­ing In­ter­me­di­ate’s Year 8 lead­er­ship team were gloved-up and poised to be­gin the task of fill­ing the sand­wich with cheese, let­tuce, cu­cum­ber, red onion and a dous­ing of may­on­naise.

Af­ter the sand­wich was made, Feild­ing po­lice con­sta­ble John Sa­muela was joined by Palmer­ston North’s new­est po­lice re­cruits Dan Mol­loy and An­drew Butcher to cut the sand­wich which was shared with the com­mu­nity at the Manch­ester Square event.

Feild­ing Pro­mo­tions’ Amanda Har­ris was buzzing with the com­mu­nity turnout and the sun shin­ing on the day.

Plant to Plate, the Feild­ing In­ter­me­di­ate kapa haka Te Paekokako and Mount Bigg school band en­ter­tained while the com­mu­nity en­joyed the sun­shine.
