To celebrate Subaru’s eighth record-breaking sales year in 2016, the automaker will once again donate one meal for every vehicle sold in 2016 – 615,132 – to help Feeding America® carry out its mission of ending hunger in the United States. Subaru will contribute $55,925 to help Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
Subaru will donate the monetary equivalent of 615,132 meals to Feeding America member food banks around the country, in communities around the Subaru corporate headquarters (The Food Bank of South Jersey) and also areas where Subaru of America has regional offices.
“One in eight people face hunger in America, including more than 13 million children. We are thankful to Subaru for its ongoing commitment to fighting hunger and supporting children and families in need,” said Nancy Curby, senior vice president of corporate partnerships and operations, Feeding America.
“As we celebrate another record-breaking year at Subaru, we, alongside our retailers and loyal customers, recognize the vital importance of giving back to our local communities across the country,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “We are proud to once again work alongside Feeding America to fight hunger and provide meals to those who need them most.”
In 2016, Subaru of America once again shattered its all-times sales record, marking the eighth consecutive year of sales records and ninth consecutive year of sales increases, with many Subaru carlines contributing to the company’s record-breaking success this year.
