Subway restaurants will be celebrating National Sandwich Day on Thursday by donating a meal of monetary equivalent for each sub purchased.

Guests can receive an extra free sub of equal or lesser value when they purchase any sub at regular price with any beverage.

“Last year we had a ‘Buy One, Get One’ deal, and it was so successful that we decided to make it even better this year,” Kristen McMahon, Account Director for WME and IMG Global Partnerships said in a press release.

In the United States, one in seven people struggle with hunger, according to Feeding America’s website.

Across communities nationwide, the food banks provided by Feeding America are combating hunger. Local member food banks allow just one dollar to help provide 11 meals through Feeding America, McMahon said.  

“FA provides food to more than 46 million people through 60,000 food pantries and meal programs,” McMahon said.

Feeding America has made it their goal to end the fight against hunger by donating as many meals as possible. They hope to make National Sandwich Day their largest donation day in history, McMahon said.

If more than 11 million meals are donated on Nov. 3, it will be the largest single-day donation in Feeding America’s history.
