Jersey Mike’s to donate 20 percent of sales to Feeding America this weekend
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Food banks across the country continue to address an increased need for food assistance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To provide everyone with an opportunity to help donate meals to their neighbors in need, Feeding America is teaming up once again with Jersey Mike’s Subs on a special fundraising event this weekend.
On Saturday, November 21, and Sunday, November 22, Jersey Mike’s will donate 20 percent of sales to Feeding America.
Last April, Jersey Mike’s raised more than $2 million for Feeding America, helping to provide 20 million meals* through the organization’s nationwide network of 200 food banks.
“Feeding America is excited to partner with Jersey Mike’s to help food banks across the country provide more meals to people in need,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. “This holiday season may look different, especially for the millions of families facing hunger, many for the first time. We encourage everyone join the fight to end hunger.”
Cathy Brown with Jersey Mike’s joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss the fundraising event.
