HATTIESBURG [November 4, 2019] – Subway® Restaurants throughout Mississippi are fighting hunger this holiday season, and you can help make a difference. With Meals For Change, 25 cents from every Fresh Value Meal sold through December 25 will go to the Extra Table, a total donation up to $26,000. The financial contribution will provide food to 58,500 hungry Mississippians through the good work of the Extra Table, a non-profit based in Hattiesburg but serving food insecure individuals statewide.
Over the last three years, Subway® has donated over 22 million meals to Feeding America. The local franchisees in Mississippi are continuing to fight local hunger issues with local fundraising campaigns like last year’s Generously Wrapped and this year’s Meals For Change.
“Thanks to community partners like Subway® we are making progress in helping people overcome hunger” states Martha Allen, Executive Director of Extra Table. “We are thankful to Subway® and its customers for their commitment in working together and helping those hungry in our state. This investment will make a lasting positive impact on the lives of food insecure children, families, seniors, and Veterans in our thirty-three-county region.”
Subway® is famous for its made-to-order foot-long and 6-inch sandwiches. They are served on a variety of gourmet breads that are baked fresh in each restaurant throughout the day. Customers create their own hot or cold sandwiches by choosing from a variety of meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses and condiments, while viewing the sandwich being assembled right in front of them. In addition to sandwiches, the new SUBWAY® restaurant in will also offer a variety of wraps, sliders, and salads.
Allen goes on to say that Subway and Extra Table make great partners as both focus on using quality and healthy ingredients throughout their service areas and Subway dining experiences.
“Office parties catered by Subway this holiday season will do double duty-feeding your staff but also feeding a hungry neighbor a healthy meal. Food is hope and it’s the holidays!” Allen suggested.
