Lansing SubwaysLANSING, Ill. (October 20, 2017) – Subway® is taking National Sandwich Day global with World Sandwich Day, and this is the third year that his two Lansing locations will participate, says owner Tom McSwiggan. On Friday, Nov. 3, those two Lansing Subways will join more than 40,000 Subway® restaurants in more than 60 countries and invite customers to join the “Live Feed” by enjoying a special offer that will help fight hunger around the world.

At both the Ridge Road and the Torrence Avenue Subways®, when customers buy a sandwich and a 30-ounce drink, they will get a free sandwich, plus Subway® will donate a meal* to Feeding America®.

“Last year, our customers helped us make history with the largest single-day donation to Feeding America—11 million meals,” said Subway® President and CEO Suzanne Greco. “This year’s unprecedented initiative will include thousands of Subway® restaurants around the globe. We’re excited to bring together our customers, franchisees, and communities to inspire global action around hunger.”

In the U.S., one out of eight people struggle with hunger, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). That means 41 million people across the country—including nearly 13 million children and more than 5 million seniors—don’t have enough to eat.

“Hunger affects millions of individuals and families in communities across America,” said Feeding America® CEO Diana Aviv. “We are proud to continue our partnership with Subway® to help people who may not know where they will find their next meal.”
