Manica is painting a mural to educate people about hunger in Canada. She is travelling in a custom-fitted ‘art truck’ over the course of two days at Queen Street West and Peter Street, York Street and Bremner Boulevard, David Pecaut Square and Yonge-Dundas Square.
Manica will promote Subway’s partnership with Food Banks Canada for World Sandwich Day. For every submarine sandwich and 21-ounce drink purchased in-store on Nov. 3, Subway will donate a free sandwich and the monetary equivalent of a meal to the charity.
“We are passionate about the fight against hunger and are once again offering more than a free sandwich on World Sandwich Day; we are offering a chance to help feed Canadians experiencing hunger,” says Cristina Wells, Subway Canada’s senior marketing director. “Our goal of donating one million meals in Canada isn’t just about celebrating sandwiches, it’s also about bringing communities together and raising awareness of hunger on a global level.”
Subway restaurants around the globe will also participate by hosting similar events and donating to hunger-relief charities in their communities.
