SUBWAY says 'Can Do' to The Salvation Army

Sandwich lovers in the south and south east of England can get a free lunch, in a joint campaign from SUBWAY and The Salvation Army.

On Thursday 19 May from midday to 6pm SUBWAY customers in 130 stores across the region can exchange two cans of food for a free six-inch sub or, if they're really hungry, four cans for a foot-long sub.

Exchange two cans of food for a free six-inch subAll donations through the Food for Food campaign will support Salvation Army community and social centres that help people in need. The cans will be distributed across The Salvation Army's Central South, London South East and Southern divisions.

‘We're delighted that local SUBWAY stores in the south have chosen to support The Salvation Army and people in need in this very practical way,' said Major Ray Irving, Director of Social Services at The Salvation Army. ‘Often when people are faced with hard times, they turn to The Salvation Army for practical and emotional help. Our funds are very limited and so this donation from local SUBWAY franchisees is greatly appreciated and will help us offer food to those who are struggling to provide the basics for the table.'

The cans will be used by The Salvation Army in a number of ways, including providing food parcels to families and older people on low incomes; given to people sleeping rough and those without a home from drop in and advice centres; and supplying training kitchens and self-catering units in lifehouse accommodation and support centres for homeless people and families.

A spokesperson for SUBWAY said: ‘Our stores are run by local business people and we are always looking for ways to get involved in our local communities. The Salvation Army does a fantastic job helping those in need and we are proud to be supporting their cause. We'd like to encourage everyone to come along, donate, get a FREE Sub and help a good cause.'

I'm not in the south but this is a brilliant initiative. I hope people don't take advantage of it by taking awful 10p tins of 'value' soup, curry sauce etc.

My subs are normally about £6, so I could get some top-end cans, and still save.:D

I totally agree with you. At the end of the day you are doing some good to society, to the homeless and elderly. Taking in 8pm curry sauce will just be taking the mick

its not abusing, if you were homeless, you would appreciate 4p curry sauce, its better than going hungry.

What a great initiative. Hope there is some small print that means they can refuse cans of stuff they have no need for and defeat the mean spirited selfish turds. As said above if you abuse it then they wont run it again.

mean spirited selfish turds, contradicts a bit as your giving food away to homeless, making a nice spirit and unselfish person, think before you speak

I refer to the people who just want to give the worst and cheapest stuff they can get away with, which isnt in the spirit of the deal. However it wont be a problem necause if they feel you are trying to abuse the offer they can refuse your cans. Think you should go and practice your comprehension.
#33
I am all for giving the cheapest stuff, the spirit of the deal is giving to homeless. I know an ex homeless person and they were grateful for people giving what they had left from mcdonalds. comprehension is off topic

Your the one that raised thinking before you speak but were unable to understand the point. Subwat get some good publicity and people ino their stores.

What the salvation army will want are canned goods they can make use of in the hostels or food parcels. If everyone buys 4p curry sauce, they wont run the deal again and it will be pretty useless to have thousand of cans of the same item. Fortunately I doubt everyone will be so selfish and at least give them a variety of canned goods they can make use of and they have a right to refuse the cans offered if they have too many of that item or its sub standard. I'd agree pdroche if people abuse it they might as well just give the subs straight to the homeless.

They could, but that doesn't then raise the public's awareness of the Sally Army's charity as much. People like to get a bargain and help charity at the same time. It makes them feel better about themselves and about Subway for doing it. It's excellent publicity for them and will even get a few people trying Subway for the first time. Everybody gains. What's the problem with that?

But you wouldn't have to spend much more to give them something they would appreciate more. Even a can of beans would be better and wouldn't cost a lot.
