As GM Tries to Figure Out Which Celebrity To Give a Truck To, Subaru Feeds 513,693 People in Need

The back-and-forth for Chevrolet seems to be over as the Most Valuable Player pick from the Super Bowl, who’d didn’t seem thrilled about Chevy’s free pickup truck for being MVP, pointed to the player who made the win for his team as the proper recipient. In a new ceremony, GM once again grabbed some headlines and TV time as the truck nobody seems to want is given to yet another football player.

Meanwhile, Subaru is celebrating selling 513,693 vehicles in the United States last year by giving away 513,693 meals to Americans in need. Subaru of America has once again teamed up with Feeding America and its network of 200 food banks nationally to provide meals to needy people across the U.S.A. Fifty thousand of those meals will be delivered right in the New Jersey area that is home to Subaru’s headquarters here. Ten thousand more will be donated to each of twelve food banks in areas where other Subaru operations are located throughout the U.S., marking another 120,000 meals. The rest will be donated to Feeding America directly to use wherever the need is greatest across their network.

“We are thrilled to receive this support and donation from Subaru,” said Nancy Curby, vice president of corporate partnerships for Feeding America. “Thanks to their commitment, Feeding America and our local food bank network will be better equipped to continue serving the 49 million children, families and seniors across America who struggle with food insecurity today.”

Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. said; “We are very happy to be sharing our success with such worthy organizations. This is part of our ‘Love Promise’ to our communities and it makes us very proud to be able to contribute in a meaningful way.”
