You know Subaru for its 2021 Forester SUV, Outback wagon, and Crosstrek subcompact SUV, but the Camden, N.J. automaker is doing good during COVID. Subaru of America and two of its largest Subaru distributors on the East coast bring relief to thousands of people who have lost jobs.
In April 2020, Subaru of America (SOA) gave a generous donation to Feeding America that provided 50 million meals to people most impacted by the pandemic around the U.S. Now, SOA just announced it is providing an additional 100 million meals to its new partner.
The Camden, N.J. automaker's contribution of an additional 100 million meals to Feeding America will help the network of food banks secure the resources needed to serve people struggling during this time of uncertainty.
Subaru partners with Feeding America's network of 200-member food banks located across the U.S. They are the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Local Subaru dealers will also provide volunteer opportunities for its employees in food drives, donations, and volunteer events as they cooperate with the organization.
"The pandemic has posed unique challenges for food banks and the people we serve," said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America. "We are tremendously grateful to Subaru of America, along with Subaru retailers and distributors, for their generous support and commitment to fighting against hunger in communities across the country."
Subaru says they will allocate 20 percent of the donation to national food programs and food banks with the highest food insecurity rates and child food insecurity rates.
Subaru is helping in a time of need, but it's not new for the automaker. They have been involved in communities long before the pandemic hit. This 100 million meal gift is an ongoing effort to help people in America most in need. SOA uses its Subaru Loves to Help pillar the Subaru Love Promise's community-focused initiative.
When you buy a 2021 Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek, or another model, the automaker invests in helping the less fortunate. They say they are more than a car company, and it's more than just words. They are proving it with their money and actions.
