I've always got my eyes and ears open for businesses that give back.  Well, I found another one that is doing this in a BIG way in quite a few towns in Southeast Minnesota and in Iowa!

Next time you need to grab lunch or a bite to eat, pull into a Subway®.  The Rochester-Mason City-Austin area Subway® restaurants are helping fight hunger in September and have a huge goal of providing 30,000 meals to local food banks.

Here's how it works:

  • Step 1:  When you are hungry, go to a Subway® Restaurant
  • Step 2:  Purchase a sub, salad or wrap, with any drink and chips or two cookies.
  • Step 3:  Enjoy

Yeah...that's it!  Your purchase will then help provide meals for people in our area that are in need.  According to the info I got from Feeding America® and Subway®, "for every 2 meals purchased from 9/1/19-9/30/19, participating Subway® restaurants will donate the monetary equivalent of 1 meal up to 30,000 meals to Rochester-Mason City-Austin-area food banks. $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks."

Think about which co-worker you are going to go out to eat with today, and while you wait for their message, check out these links to learn a bit more:

This is a great way to #ShowYourLocalLove too!  If you are looking for a few other ideas, take a scroll through my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or Instagram.
