SUBWAY® Feeding Food Banks Everywhere in Manitoba


WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Throughout the month of November 2017, Subway® guests were asked to make a donation to their local food bank. Generosity abounds and because of these donations, Subway® Franchisees of MB have collected $17,089.10 for the Food Banks in Manitoba.

Starting early in November 2017, on the heels of National Sandwich Day, Subway® guests throughout Manitoba were asked to support food banks in the province by donating to their local food bank when paying for their Subway® meal.

Corporately, Subway® Canada has added $11,180.52 to the customer contributions, bringing the total for the 2017 donation to the remarkable $28,269.62.

The team at Manitoba Food Banks are continuing the journey of working for Manitobans who are living in poverty. They serve as one united voice in the province for families living in poverty, day after day, meal after meal.

With the much-needed cash donations, Manitoba Food Banks can purchase fresh, nutritious foods including fruits, vegetables, eggs, dairy and protein. Every dollar donated enables the organizers to supply three meals to a person in need. 

All funds donated will stay in the neighbourhoods in which they were collected, making this a true "neighbour helping neighbour" campaign.
