Regional Food Bank, Jersey Mike’s Subs team up for Month of Giving

OKLA. CITY — The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Oklahoma City metro-area for the third annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on March 27.

During the month of March, customers can make a donation to the Regional Food Bank at any metro area Jersey Mike’s restaurant. On March 27, a special nationwide celebration, “Day of Giving,” will take place at all Jersey Mike’s locations to benefit 86 charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

On that day, Oklahoma City residents are invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal. All metro area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids program.

Local Jersey Mike’s restaurants participating include:

• 1724 S. Broadway Extension in Edmond;

• 1149 E. Second St. in Edmond;

• 2522 W. Memorial Road in Oklahoma City;

• 3604 N. May Ave. in Oklahoma City; and

• 6719 N. May Ave. in Oklahoma City.

“For a second year in a row, Jersey Mike’s is making a huge impact on childhood hunger in Oklahoma,” said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. “Last year, metro stores raised more than $26,000 for Food for Kids. Please visit Jersey Mikes this month and help us fight hunger and feed hope in Oklahoma.”

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised nearly $858,000 for 74 charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving in support of one of your local charities,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “The opportunities to give are all around us so we hope this March you will join us to make a difference in someone’s life.”

The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
