To celebrate World Sandwich Day, give back to the local community and to help fight food insecurity, Bunbury’s Subway donated one meal from every sub bought on Friday to Foodbank.
Bunbury Subway franchisee Mark Price said he had chosen to get involved because it was such a great project.
“We’re always trying to help out,” he said.
“We support the Bunbury Soup Van and the Senior Citizens Centre, everything helps.”
After an overwhelming response on the day, Bunbury residents helped to feed 40,000 locals in need.
Bunbury Foodbank assistant manager Glenn Sudholz said it was fantastic that Subway was donating meals.
“It’s very important that Subway has come on board to support Foodbank, donations are light this year and any extra help from all the businesses is much appreciated,” he said.
“A lot of people at the moment are struggling to buy food because utility bills are up, electricty, gas and people are battling.
“We have people come in that are embarrassed because they need help.
“The support we receive is wonderful because it shows the communities spirit to help everyone.”
