MILFORD, Conn. (WFXR) – Subway restaurants have begun a new promotion that will benefit those going hungry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Customers can purchase any Footlong sub for takeout, catering, and delivery through April 30 and in exchange, Subway will donate a meal to the non-profit organization, Feeding America including Feeding Southwest Virginia.

Food banks across the country have seen an increased need for food and with shelves becoming more and more bare, the need for both food and money is at an all-time high.

Subway has always been a part of the community to provide delicious subs and a helping hand – and we plan to continue to do just that during this time of hardship. From keeping our restaurants open and safe to providing better-for-you food options, to our Franchise Owners dedicating their time and donating food, Subway is open to serve and we are proud to once again partner with Feeding America to help make sure our neighbors are getting the nutritious meals they need and deserve.”

Trevor Haynes, North America President of Subway

Even while several restaurants are closing due to the pandemic, Subway has been dedicated to remaining open and ready to serve. Franchise Owners across the world have been donating meals to those on the frontlines including healthcare workers and first responders, as well as donating meals to children who typically rely on school lunches for their midday meal.
