Penticton Subway making it fresh for Soupateria

Subway shops are donating 600 inches of subs, 100 cookies and drinks to Soupateria Dec. 20

The Penticton Subway shops team will donate 600 inches of delicious subs made fresh for clients and staff of Soupateria.

The donation includes drinks and cookies for everyone as well and is taking place on Dec. 20.

“It’s really great because the organizers of Soupateria get to take a break from cooking for everyone and get to be treated too,” Manpreet Grewal of the Penticton store said.

About 100 clients and volunteers will be served.

The day of giving comes on the heels of Feed the Food Banks of B.C. donation program. Throughout the month of November Subway guests were given the option to donate to their local food bank when paying for their Subway meal. Through this year’s donation program, $35,069.20 will be donated to the food banks and soup kitchens located in every community in the province.

In the last three years the Subway Feed the Food Banks donation program has raised $124,528.41 for B.C.’s food banks.

“Team Subway is delighted to support Penticton Community Soupateria, a volunteer-based organization which relies solely on donations from the community,” a press release from the Penticton Subway team stated.
