A recent survey showed that more than half of teachers work through their lunch break, while nearly 40% said they skip meals to get their work done.

Subway and ezCater want to treat these hardworking educators to a free lunch through their Catering for Educators contest, which will deliver catered lunches to the faculty and staff at 2,022 schools nationwide!

“Lunch, and a lunch break, are essential to everyone’s workday. We are thrilled to partner with Subway to help grow their catering business and to give hardworking teachers and faculty some recognition and a much-needed break.” – Mike O’Hanlon, Chief Customer Care and Operations Officer at ezCater

    I too just learned that the elementary school I nominated was selected. I checked with the teacher and she received the email as well along with delivery instructions. So exciting. Thanks H2S for caring about our educators enough to share this opportunity to treat them to lunch!!

      That is SO exciting! 🙌 You’re so welcome, Michelle! Thanks so much for updating us about their win! 🥰

    Do any of you whose school won mind sharing delivery info? Did they actually coordinate a time, address, number of staff, etc? I also received an email that our school won, but there wasn’t delivery info given.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay!!! That’s great!!! Another reader shared above👆 that the delivery instructions are sent to the teachers. Hope that’s helpful, Amanda!!!💕

  5. Amanda

    Yes, very exciting! The email said I was listed as the contact person for delivery and to email if there was someone else to put them in touch with. I emailed days ago but haven’t heard back, so that’s why I was just wondering if others’ delivery emails had specifics in them.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Hopefully you hear something soon. Congratulation again!!!💗

    • Amy

      I won too, but our lunches didn’t show up. I feel scammed. 🙁
