Timmons Subaru Long Beach is thrilled to announce that Subaru of America, Inc. is continuing it's commitment to supporting the people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by helping to provide 50 million meals* to Feeding America®. The donation will help the Feeding America network respond to the incredibly increased need in our communities and will help provide 50 million meals nationwide to people most impacted by the pandemic. As the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization and a nationwide network of 200-member food banks, Subaru’s contribution will help ensure that families and individuals across the country are fed and cared for during these uncertain times.
 

“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 onset of COVID-19 pandemic, 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, millions more, who have never needed assistance before, will 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 is helping secure will enable food banks to obtain the resources they desperately need in order to serve the most vulnerable members of our communities.
 

“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,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America.


Through this landmark partnership, Subaru, its independent distributors, and the Subaru network of 633 dealerships nationwide, including Timmons Subaru Long Beach, will foster relationships with local Feeding America member food banks. Together, we will work to provide ongoing support in the form of food drives, donations and volunteer events as Subaru goes above and beyond to be more than just a car company for its communities during these globally challenging times. Through these events and donations, Subaru will work toward a shared goal to get our communities back on their feet.

The automaker’s donation to Feeding America is a part of the Subaru Loves to Help pillar program, the community-focused initiative of the Subaru Love Promise. To learn more about Subaru Loves to Help and the community work that Timmons Subaru does, visit our community pages.
