CEDAR RAPIDS, WATERLOO, DUBUQUE (August 29, 2019) — During Hunger Action Month this
September, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Dubuque-area Subway® restaurants are helping to fight
hunger in their community by providing up to 60,000 meals* to local food banks that are
members of the Feeding America nationwide network. Through this ‘Feeding the Need’ initiative,
when Subway® guests purchase a sub, salad or wrap, with any drink and chips or two cookies,
their purchase will help feed people in their community.
“On behalf of the Feeding America network of food banks, we would like to thank the locally
owned and operated Subway restaurants in the Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Dubuque area for their
generous and ongoing support,” says Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships
at Feeding America. “The funds raised through this campaign will help local food banks better
serve children and families who may not know where they will find their next meal.”
For every 2 meals purchased from September 1st to September 30th, more than 80 participating
Subway restaurants will donate 1 meal up to 60,000 meals to local area food banks*.
