National Eat A Hoagie Day

On September 14th, National Eat a Hoagie Day is a celebration that is also known as a grinder, sub, or hero. To celebrate, you can also order a po'boy, toro, or an Italian sandwich.


On a long roll of Italian or French bread, the hoagie consists of meats, cheeses, vegetables, sauces, and seasonings.

However, the source of this massive sandwich is a little bit of mystery. The epicenter of the controversy appears to be eastern Pennsylvania between the DiCostanzas and DePalma's. Both lay claim to being the first to make the hoagie. One family is said to have been making the sandwich since 1923 and the other since 1925. But who has the evidence?

During World War II, shipyard workers in Philadelphia were delivering huge Italian sandwiches to work wrapped in newspaper. Another tale from the Philadelphia area takes place during World War I. The large sandwiches helped the employees through their long, grueling workdays. In fact, the workers branded the massive sandwiches "hoggies" because anyone eating them at one sitting would have to be a hog. The Philadelphia accent reveals the word's change. The vowel sounds change from "hoggies" to "hoagies" in a few seconds, according to the dialect.

One story takes place outside of school – almost literally. If a child skipped school, it was called being "on the hook" or "playing hokey" at one time. A "hokey" sandwich could be purchased for a price a kid on the lam could afford. "Hokey" became "hoagie" eventually, especially if the children were skipping school.
