Did you know that in March 2022, there were nearly 1.5 million visits to food banks in Canada? This is the highest March usage on record—even though unemployment rates were at their lowest on record in the same month, according to the Food Banks Canada Hunger Count 2022 report.
This month, Subway Canada and Food Banks Canada have teamed up to help alleviate child hunger in our communities, with a month-long donation drive. From November 1 to 20, $1 from every transaction in the Subway App and online orders will be donated to the Never Miss Lunch program. Now in its fourth year, Never Miss Lunch, in partnership with Food Banks Canada’s After the Bell program, aims to provide nutritious food to kids in need during the summer break when many school-based lunch programs end.
The program will support child hunger initiatives in 190 communities across Canada—including five fly-in communities in Nunavut. It’s a Subway sandwich-kids win situation! —Vita Daily
