Lima, OH (WIMA) - Subway restaurants recently launched the "Buy a Hero, Be a Hero" campaign to help alleviate hunger in the Lima area.

If you visit a Lima area Subway and purchase an Italian Hero, the restaurant will donate 50 cents to the West Ohio Food Bank for each sub sold.

Every dollar goes back to the community to help provide food to those in need.

Local Subway restaurants have committed to donating at least 15 hundred dollars as well.
