Shamrock Farms®, Subway® Restaurants and actress and singer-songwriter Leighton Meester are once again joining forces to support Feeding America®, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States, and to help provide meals for people in need in the new year.
“Food insecurity is an issue I continue to be truly passionate about as it’s one that hits close to home for me. So, I am very proud to work with Subway and Shamrock Farms again to help more families in need,” said Leighton Meester, Feeding America Entertainment Council member. “Last year with the support of families across the U.S. simply purchasing Shamrock Farms milk with a kid’s meal at Subway Restaurants, Feeding America was able to provide three hundred and fifty thousand meals and it’s our hope that people will join in again to help deliver more good to people that need it.”
A top food source for protein, calcium and Vitamin D, milk continues to be one of the most requested items at food banks. While critical to fueling growing bodies and minds, basic staples like nutrient-packed milk are often missing from the diets of many children facing hunger.
“We’re honored to continue our partnership and work towards our shared mission of hunger relief for the second year in a row,” said Ann Ocaña, chief marketing officer for Shamrock Farms. “Our Shamrock Farms milk provides essential nutrients and protein for growing children and adults so National Milk Day is a great opportunity to help nourish families and give back.”
Help us meet our goal of providing at least a quarter million meals in communities across the country by purchasing Shamrock Farm’s milk with a Fresh Fit For Kids® meal* at participating Subway restaurants nationwide.
