Penn Station East Coast Subs Fights Hunger With Elara

Fast Casual Restaurant Participates in One Case • One Meal Program

July 26, 2016 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI, OHIO - Penn Station East Coast Subs, the fast-casual restaurant known for its grilled, made-to-order sub sandwiches, hand-squeezed lemonade and fresh-cut fries, has joined Elara in its One Case • One Meal program for hunger relief. Elara recognized Penn Station for feeding 1,041 individuals through the program last year.

One Case • One Meal provides meals in partnership with local food banks to feed people at risk of going hungry. For each case of Elara products purchased, the company gives a meal to someone struggling with hunger.

“Elara’s One Case • One Meal program is an amazing way to fight hunger and help people who need food,” said Craig Dunaway, president of Penn Station East Coast Subs. “We are happy to join them in the fight and support this program. Their commitment to fighting hunger is admirable, and it makes us proud to work with them.”
