No Family Left Inside – Free Lunch For Hikers

Free State Park Entrance and Free Subway Sandwich and National Public Lands Day

WA Parks

Washington State Parks turned 100 years old this past March, 2013. In honor of the Centennial and National Public Lands Day, SUBWAY® restaurants is partnering with the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission to launch No Family Left Inside. Running the entire month of September, this program will reward park visitors by honoring their Discover Pass in all 406 SUBWAY® restaurants located in seventeen counties throughout Western Washington.

“Encouraging families to lead more healthy, active lifestyles is very important to us,” said Paul Armour, SUBWAY® Advertising Board Chairman. “Getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors together is a great way to do that, and that’s why we decided to launch the No Family Left Inside program.”

Anyone who visits participating SUBWAY® restaurants and shows their Discover Pass during the month of September will receive a free six-inch sandwich with the purchase of a six-inch sandwich of equal or greater value and a 30 oz. drink. SUBWAY® restaurants also will distribute Washington State Parks maps at all locations throughout the region.

They are celebrating with events in parks all over the state, all year long. For more information, visit Parks.wa.gov/events. 

“Encouraging families to lead more healthy, active lifestyles is very important to us,” said Paul Armour, SUBWAY® Advertising Board Chairman. “Getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors together is a great way to do that, and that’s why we decided to launch the No Family Left Inside program.”

This project has been put together in conjunction with the National Environmental Education Foundation. NEEF is the nation’s leading organization in lifelong environmental learning, connecting people to knowledge they use to improve the quality of their lives and the health of the planet. We achieve this by providing knowledge to trusted professionals and other leaders who, with their credibility, amplify messages to national audiences to solve every day environmental problems.
