Starting early in November 2017, on the heels of National Sandwich Day, Subway® guests throughout Saskatchewan 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 $9,349.79 to the customer contributions, bringing the total for the 2017 donation to the remarkable $21,247.69.

With the purchasing power of the Food Banks of Saskatchewan, each dollar donated becomes $3 in food for the clients using the services of the food banks and agencies located throughout the province. The Subway® of SK donation will buy $63,743.07. 00 in food for hungry people living in Saskatchewan.

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

Food banks in Saskatchewan respond to over 30,000 requests provincially for services per month, half of those requests benefiting school aged children. With the much-needed cash donations, Food Banks of Saskatchewan can purchase fresh, nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, eggs, dairy and protein; all essential to good health, particularly in growing children.

"We could not be more appreciative of the support provided by the management, staff and of course, the caring customers of Subway® locations across the province." Says Steve Compton, Executive Director, Food Banks Saskatchewan.   He goes on to say, "The proceeds raised by this incredible campaign will ensure that provincial food banks are able to help those in need in the communities we serve through the winter months."
