Jersey Mike’s Subs is partnering once again with Feeding America, a domestic hunger-relief organization, to help member food banks keep their shelves stocked this holiday season. On November 19 and 20, Jersey Mike’s will donate 20 percent of sales to Feeding America.
Back in 2020, HT named Jersey Mike's an Industry Hero for raising $4.5 million dollars for Feeding America. Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems' robust e-commerce platform allowed it to accommodate increased online orders and third-party and native delivery.
Increased Demand for Food Assistance
“Food banks are facing increased demand for food assistance in their communities, and we are working to ensure that people do not have to worry about their next meal during this holiday season and beyond,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. “In our fight against hunger, Feeding America is grateful for partners like Jersey Mike’s, whose ongoing commitment will help us to better serve our neighbors.”
In 2021, 53 million people turned to food banks, food pantries and meal programs for help putting food on the table.
“This year, we’d like to invite you back to Jersey Mike’s for another special weekend. Come in this Saturday and Sunday when 20 percent of all sales will be donated to Feeding America, helping families in need,” said Peter Cancro, Founder and CEO of Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc. “Raising up together, we always make a difference.”
