Hot on the heels of granting some Sandwishes for our Readers, we are thrilled to remind you once again that tomorrow is #NationalSandwichDay! To celebrate the day, our friends at SUBWAY® Canada are not only doing good for our Willionaires, but also Canadian families at risk!
Tomorrow, Thursday, November 3, 2016,SUBWAY® Canada will be donating the equivalent of one meal for every purchase of a drink and sandwich!
This means more than 303,000 meals will be donated across the country to Food Banks Canada, who helps over 1.7 million Canadians with their network of 550 food banks and 3,000 affiliated programs.
We had the absolute pleasure of visiting the North York Harvest Food Bank today participating in a food sort. The process ensure that the Food Bank stays organized and more importantly that those who receive your donations are getting food, a portion of which is fresh, just like those delicious, nourishing sandwiches we eat at SUBWAY®.
Working together with SUBWAY® Canada employees across the GTA volunteering for the morning, together we sorted and packed donations grouped into several food categories.
In a guided tour from Michelle Vinokurov, Director of Development and Marketing for the North York Harvest, we learned that recipients are permitted to make only two visits per month to the Food Bank, meaning that families must carefully ration their supplies with much caution. Their philosophy very much places first and foremost the dignity of recipients giving them choice in selections based on their own tastes and dietary restrictions. Pet food even is accepted, which may come as a surprise to some.
