It is estimated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that 41 million people, including 13 million children and 5 million senior citizens, are not able to put enough food on their table each year. That means one in eight people are going hungry. It's a troubling issue.

This is why, for the second year in a row, Subway restaurants across the globe, including here in Cedar Rapids, will be participating in a "Live Feed" for World Sandwich Day.

It's simple. On Friday, November 3rd, when you buy a sandwich at Subway along with a 30 oz. beverage, you will get a FREE sandwich, and Subway will donate a free meal to Feeding America, who, according to their website are the largest hunger-relief organization in the nation.

So, take a friend out to lunch at Subway on the 3rd. They will get a free sandwich with your meal purchase and you'll be doing your part to help those in need.

For more information on the World Sandwich Day initiative at Subway restaurants, go to their website.
