Lunch is on Wawa Today – PLUS Tonight ROCKY MOVIE TO BE SHOWN AT THE ART MUSEUM STEPS

Lunch is on Wawa today. Come on down to the Independence Mall, 6th and Market Streets at Noon and get a piece of the mile long hoagie as Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter will join Philadelphia police officers and firefighters, Wawa associates and hoagie-lovers across the Region to celebrate Hoagie Day 2011. This year, Wawa will honor our soldiers and local heroes by partnering with the USO. Wawa will be serving a 4.5 ton Hoagie salute on Independence Mall in front of the Independence Visitor’s Center. Hoagie Day will also feature a variety of activities including a charitable hoagie building competition between Philadelphia police and firefighters and members of the Pennsylvania Army Guard and the Pennsylvania Air Guard, a Hoagie Day feast and a special Hoagie Day proclamation.
Half of the huge hoagie will be Italian and half will be turkey. The morning builders will create it from hundreds of pounds of ingredients that will be loaded onto a refrigerated truck and served free to attendees later that day. Wawa also will send 5,000 hoagies built that morning to the Philabudance food bank.
