NAMPA, Idaho — Team Subaru of Nampa is working with Feeding America as part of the larger Subaru of America, Inc. initiative to provide 50 million meals to people hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the program, Team Subaru of Nampa will support local food banks in the Treasure Valley area by helping to donate 40,874 meals to The Idaho Foodbank.
The meals will provide immediate assistance to those affected by the pandemic and help the community back on its feet.
“On a daily basis many of our neighbors are struggling to meet basic needs and some, for the first time, are facing the reality of hunger. Prior to the pandemic, over 210,000 Idahoans were food insecure and nearly 70,000 were children. Those numbers are multiplying rapidly as we witness the increasing demand for food from communities across the state, “ said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “That is why we are grateful to Subaru for their commitment to provide food and hope when Idahoans need it the most.
“Team Subaru is always looking for ways to help the Treasure Valley community, so it was easy for us to agree to participate in Subaru’s Feeding America initiative to provide meals to The Idaho Food bank, “ said Rob Studebaker, General Manager of Team Subaru of Nampa.
Feeding America is a part of the Subaru Loves to Help pillar, the community-focused initiative of the Subaru Love Promise. To learn more about Subaru Loves to Help and the local Feeding America Initiative click here.
