Subaru is giving back to communities across the US by partnering with the Feeding America campaign. This is the third year in a row that the brand has announced a sales-matching meal donations program for Feeding America, giving over 600,000 meals to those in need. As the eighth record-breaking sales year in a row, it seemed fitting that Subaru should give something back. Read on to learn more about the Subaru Feeding America campaign.
According to Subaru, the Subaru matching program gave one meal for every vehicle sold in 2016—more than 615,000—to the Feeding America organization. Feeding America’s mission is the end hunger in the US one meal at a time, and Subaru gave over $55,000 in order to do so. The Feeding America organization is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief program.
“One in eight people face hunger in America, including more than 13 million children. We are thankful to Subaru for its ongoing commitment to fighting hunger and supporting children and families in need,” said Nancy Curby, senior vice president of corporate partnerships and operations for Feeding America.
About $1 helps to provide 11 meals thanks to some innovative strategies by Feeding America. A large portion of the donations go to food banks near South Jersey, home of Subaru headquarters. Other places that received donations were Orlando, FL, Dublin, OH, Portland, OR, and more. This is just one of many ways Subaru is giving back to communities across the US.
