Subaru of America Inc. announced on Thursday it has partnered with Feeding America to help provide more than 50 million meals to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donation will help Feeding America’s 200-member food bank network respond to the increased need for food in the communities most impacted by the outbreak.

“In these trying times we all search for stability in our daily lives,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America. “We hope that through this donation to Feeding America, we can provide the comfort and stability of a meal for people who struggle with hunger in America. We must all stay safe but remember to help others where we can.”

Prior to the pandemic, hunger afflicted nearly 37 million Americas, 11 million of which are children. As families are facing the realities of government-mandated stay at home orders, millions more will be facing the dangers of unemployment, food insecurity and more.

“We are incredibly grateful for the generous donation from Subaru, which will help every food bank in our network provide food to our neighbors in need. During this unprecedented time, the Feeding America nationwide network of 200 food banks is working tirelessly to respond to increased need in their communities. We are proud to work with Subaru to help the most vulnerable people impacted by this pandemic,” Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America, said.
