Subaru Partners with Feeding America During COVID-19 Crisis

Posted by: Jennifer Morand

In an effort to support people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Subaru announced a national partnership with Feeding America. Subaru’s donation will help the Feeding America network respond to increased need in their communities and will help provide 50 million meals nationwide to people most impacted by the pandemic.
On a local level, as part of Subaru’s 50 million meals goal, 1,476,274 meals will be distributed to area food banks including the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana. 
Prior to the onset of COVID-19, hunger was already a reality for 37 million Americans, 11 million of whom are children. As families face the reality of sheltering in place and its associated fallout for the foreseeable future, millions more face the very real danger of unemployment, unprecedented difficulty accessing and purchasing food and an increased reliance on food banks to keep food on their tables. The 50 million meals that Subaru helps secure will enable food banks to secure the resources they need to serve the most vulnerable members of their communities.
Through the Feeding America partnership, Subaru will work toward a shared goal of getting communities back on their feet—something that is very much in line with the car company’s greater corporate social responsibility strategy. Many may recall the pet adoptions that took place each day at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, for instance, where Subaru partnered with three local pet shelters during the duration of the event.
