Subway® Helps Fight Hunger in Australia with Live Feed

On World Sandwich Day, Friday the 3rd of November Subway® shops around the world will come together for their largest fundraising event, the Subway® “Live Feed”, an initiative to help fight hunger globally.

To celebrate the movement, every local customer who visits a Subway® shop on the day has the opportunity to buy a sandwich, salad or wrap, get one free for a friend, and help Subway® give a meal to someone in need through Foodbank Australia.

Every meal donated on World Sandwich Day will become part of the global Subway® movement and will be tracked through the Subway® “Live Feed” digital ticker, via SubwayLiveFeed.com.au. The ticker will also be showcased in high profile areas around the world. Subway® is expecting to donate hundreds of thousands of meals across Australia, and millions more globally.

Subway® Australia has partnered with Australia’s largest hunger-relief charity, Foodbank, as part of the initiative which will assist the 3.6 million Australians[1] experiencing food insecurity annually.

Each year, Foodbank deliver more than 63 million meals to Australians seeking hunger relief through the help of farmers, manufacturers, retailers, and its thousands of volunteers across the country.

Brianna Casey, CEO of Foodbank Australia says she is delighted to be part of Subway® “Live Feed” for the restaurant’s largest fundraising event.

“We are expecting to feed hundreds of thousands of Aussies seeking hunger relief through Subway® “Live Feed”, and we are thrilled to be a part of this exciting campaign®,” Brianna says.

“Hunger relief is such an important issue globally, as well as in Australia, where 15% of the population has experienced food insecurity in the last 12 months. It’s terrific that Subway® will be helping us put food on the plates for vulnerable Australians and their families,” Brianna continues.

The fundraising event will be supported by a host of Australia’s favourite celebrities, and by simply dropping into your local Subway® shop on 3 November, you can help make a difference to a fellow Aussie in need.

The charity day will be occurring across over 1,450 Subway® shops across Australia.
