Subway donates over 40,000 meals to help kids in need

New Zealand’s largest fast food chain, Subway has donated over 40,000 meals to KiwiHarvest to ensure kids in need have ‘access to fresh, nutritious food’.

This contribution is a result of their initiative ‘Every Kids Pak Gives Back’, launched last September.

Subway makes a donation to KiwiHarvest -a national food rescue charity, for every sale of their Kids Pak to cover the cost of one meal for a New Zealand child in need.

With one in five New Zealand kids living in poverty and regularly going hungry, Subway’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Amanda Templeton said yesterday Subway wants to ease the burden on New Zealand families, and this donation will help KiwiHarvest to ease the burden after a tough year due to the pandemic.

“At Subway we believe all children should have access to fresh, nutritious food. Our ‘Every Kids’ Pak Gives Back’ initiative is about fighting food insecurity, especially after a such a challenging 2020, with many families are continuing to do it tough,” Templeton said.

KiwiHarvest General Manager, Blandina Diamond was thrilled with the positive response seen since the launch of this initiative.

“KiwiHarvest has a long history working with Subway as a brand partner and their latest initiative means we can continue to deliver on our mission of feeding food insecure Kiwis,” Diamond said.

Subway’s initiative in partnership with Kiwi Harvest will continue for the remainder of the year.
