Competition Subaru Loves to Help


Prior to the onset of COVID-19, hunger was already a reality for 37 million Americans, 11 million of whom are children. As local families face the reality of sheltering in place and its associated fallout for the foreseeable future, millions more will face the very real danger of unprecedented difficulty accessing and purchasing food and an increased reliance on food banks to keep food on their tables.


The nation's food banks are already under tremendous strain. Donations are down. Critical volunteers are staying home. And with schools closed across the country, many children are at an even greater risk of hunger. As the brand committed to Love for over a decade, it makes sense for Subaru and our dealers to do our part and help.

Competition Subaru has partnered with Island Harvest, with 1 mission to end hunger and reduce waste on Long Island. Taking donations in our community since 1992 Island Harvest has proudly served over 300,000 Long Islander.

 
 

Through the Subaru Love Promise, Subaru and its two regional independent distributors, Subaru of New England and Subaru Distributors Corp., are providing 50 million meals to Feeding America.

The donations will aid Feeding America to respond to the growing demand for help needed to ensure families and individuals across the country are fed and secured during this difficult situation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In these trying times, we all search for stability in our daily lives," said Subaru of America President and CEO Thomas J. Doll. "We hope that through this donation to Feeding America, we can provide the comfort and stability of a meal for people who struggle with hunger in America. We must all stay safe but remember to help others where we can."

 "We are incredibly grateful for the generous donation from Subaru, which will help every food bank in our network provide food to our neighbors in need," said Feeding America CEO Claire Babineaux-Fontenot. "During this unprecedented time, the Feeding America nationwide network of 200 food banks is working tirelessly to respond to increased need in their communities. We are proud to work with Subaru to help the most vulnerable people impacted by this pandemic."
