My daughter dressed up as a witch for Halloween this year but was sad when she saw other witch costumes with a broom as an accessory. Her older brother came rushing into the house looking for scotch tape, which I provided to him and then watched him run into the backyard to rummage through an old wood pile. Luckily for him, our lawnmower had broken down because the next thing I knew he was presenting his little sister with a stick that had very long grass taped to the bottom to form a broom.
The point of this story is that kids are never too young to learn about the power of kindness and we as parents need to nurture that side of them from an early age. I had plans to bring my kids to volunteer at our local Kanata Food Bank to celebrate #NationalSandwichDay with SUBWAY® Canada but they are unfortunately too young to be volunteers. Instead we decided to put together a care package that we will drop off to the food bank together and that way I can still give them a quick tour of the facilities and explain to them why the food banks are so important.
What Is National Sandwich Day?
Today is a big day at your local SUBWAY restaurant as they celebrate National Sandwich Day! For every sandwich purchased with a drink on National Sandwich Day, SUBWAY Canada will donate a meal to Food Banks Canada. But that’s not all. In addition to donating a meal, SUBWAY will also give the purchaser a second sandwich of equal or lesser value for free!
Food Banks Canada will help more than 1.7 million Canadians this year and your help is needed more than ever. You can help your local food bank in many ways, by donating money or food, volunteering your time or even just spreading the word on social media or even simpler,this year you can also head in to your local SUBWAY restaurant on Nov 3rd, you know, today, grab a sandwich and drink, and talk to your kids about how fortunate they are to be able to enjoy that experience.
Well, why are you still reading this post? Grab your family and get out to your local SUBWAY restaurant to enjoy 2 for 1 sandwiches while also helping Food Banks Canada!
