Following a Donation in 2020, Automaker Furthers Commitment to Hunger Relief Organization to Feeding America Food Banks
Winston-Salem, NC – In early 2021, Subaru of America, Inc., joined by its two regional independent distributors, Subaru of New England and Subaru Distributors Corp., announced its continued commitment to supporting people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by helping provide an additional 100 million meals* to Feeding America® and its affiliated food banks, including Second Harvest Food Bank fo Northwest NC. The donation is double the automaker’s April 2020 donation, in which they helped provide 50 million meals to the hunger-relief organization.
“Once again, Subaru is working with Feeding America to help the millions of families struggling with hunger across the U.S.,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “As we continue to weather these unprecedented times together, we hope our contribution to Feeding America ensures the most vulnerable members of our communities are fed and cared for.”
In the face of continuing economic uncertainty, many families are struggling to provide adequate nourishment for themselves and for their families. In fact, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, one in four children in this country, and throughout the 18 counties served by Second Harvest may face hunger.
The automaker is helping to contribute an additional 100 million meals to Feeding America, which will help food banks secure the resources needed to serve people who are struggling during this time of uncertainty. Participating Subaru retailers nationwide have made supplemental donations to their local Feeding America member food banks, currently totaling an additional 5.6 million meals* to those in need, totaling 105 million meals donated from Subaru.
“The pandemic has posed unique challenges for food banks and the people we serve,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. “We are tremendously grateful to Subaru of America, along with Subaru retailers and distributors, for their generous support and commitment to fighting against hunger in communities across the country.”
In March of 2021, our Food Bank received a donation of more than $43,000 from to support our on-going, strong efforts to feed our community.
