The Foundation of Goodness is a holistic rural development model that seeks to bridge the urban-rural divide in Sri Lanka via 10 empowerment divisions across 900+ villages island-wide, and reached over 307,000+ beneficiaries in 2022 alone by way of 15 Empowerment Centres, free of cost.
For several years now, the Foundation of Goodness has partnered with Subway® Sri Lanka to commemorate World Sandwich Day with a difference. Celebrated each year during the first week of November, the 2018 Subway campaign ‘Double the feel good’ enabled customers to buy a sub-meal and get one free. Proceeds from the sales on this day were donated towards FoG to feed the hungry!
Together with Subway, we were delighted to have the opportunity to facilitate delicious, healthy meals to over 200 beneficiaries from various parts of Sri Lanka. The meals were nutritious and wholesome and the smiles on the faces of our beneficiaries showed us how much they enjoyed the treat!

18 children from the Gunasekera Child Development Centre in Nawala
Together with Subway, we were delighted to have this opportunity to appease the hunger of 200 people around Sri Lanka who depend on the kindness and generosity of others while they are at their most vulnerable. We look forward to positively impacting many more lives in the future through similar projects.
The story of the Subway brand started more than 50 years ago when Dr. Peter Buck, a nuclear physicist, changed the life of college student, Fred DeLuca with a few simple words, “Let’s open a submarine sandwich shop.” Founded by then 17-year-old Fred DeLuca to pay his college tuition fees, Subway is still a family-owned business today working with more than 21,000 dedicated franchisees in communities around the world. Subway is committed to providing a wide range of great tasting food choices, while reducing their environmental footprint and creating a positive influence in the communities they serve.
