Mid-South Subway® Restaurants Give Back to 11 Local Hospitals
GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (May 12, 2020) – Mid-South Subway® restaurant Business Development Agents and local Franchise Owners worked to deliver 1,100 boxed meals to 11 hospitals across the Memphis, Tenn.; Jackson, Tenn.; Columbus-Tupelo, Miss., and Corinth, Miss. areas through last week to the healthcare workers on the frontlines helping patients combat the Coronavirus pandemic.
“We received lot of positive feedback from our crews. They were very appreciative of the gesture from Subway during this time. I am one who is among that group,” said Kevin Deaton from Jackson General Hospital.
During this unprecedented time, Subway remains committed to not only providing nutritious meals, but also getting them to those who need it the most. Along with keeping restaurants open and ready to serve, individual Subway Franchise Owners in Memphis have also stepped up in big ways with over 450 additional boxed meals and sweet treats donated in their local community to healthcare workers and first responders, including a local police department.
“This series of donations to our frontline healthcare workers exemplifies how Subway Franchise Owners are woven into the fabric of their local communities. We’re incredibly proud to be a part of this team,” said Jake Ring, Subway Business Development Agent.
In addition to local efforts, Subway and Feeding America® teamed up in April to provide 15 million meals* to feed people nationwide. With Feeding America predicting food banks needing an additional estimated $1.4 billion over the next six months to feed people in need due to the COIVD-19 pandemic, Subway and its guests landed their support by simply ordering their favorite Footlong from participating restaurants through the Subway app, on order.subway.com or by visiting Subway.com.
Subway has also taken steps in restaurant to ensure a safe experience, including increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing, continued reinforcement of existing health and food safety protocols and moving to a takeout and delivery-only model.
