DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Detroit-based SUBWAY® Restaurants recently donated over 8,000 sandwiches to the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan for the organization's annual walk. This is the largest food donation made by any Michigan SUBWAY® market group and is the largest food donation the National Kidney Foundation has received to date in any state.

"The SUBWAY® franchisees of Detroit and Southeastern Michigan recognize the importance of the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan and the dedication it has for the people of this state," said Nik Moschouris, Development Agent & Franchisee for the Detroit SUBWAY® market. "As active members of our communities, SUBWAY® is committed to supporting organizations like the National Kidney Foundation, and we're very proud of the level of engagement seen in our Detroit market. This was our market's largest catering donation to date."

Five local SUBWAY® franchisees collaborated to deliver 535 sandwich platters, each holding 15 sandwiches, on Sunday, May 15. All 8,025 sandwiches were made and delivered the day of the event, which took place at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, Michigan.

"We are very excited that SUBWAY® was our largest food sponsor this year," said Lisa Schutz-Jelic, Director of Development for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. "2016 proved to be a record-breaking year with our largest number of walk attendees since we first began in 1996. We are very grateful to SUBWAY® for their ability to provide healthy food options to such a large number of people and for their commitment to the community we serve."
