Walk With a Purpose Raised $$$ for the School Nutrition Foundation



We walked. We raised money.  We had fun!  The School Nutrition Foundation’s (SNF) first annual Walk With a Purpose walkathon united school nutrition professionals and their families and friends across the country during April 15-22, 2021.  Participating individuals and teams raised almost $43,000 that will help provide scholarships, grants and professional development to SNA members. 

NFL icons Fanco Harris and Drew Brees both took part in the virtual pep rally that kicked off the Walk.  Their inspirational messages and support motivated the participants to walk, jog or bike a 5K distance in their communities - and to have fun while doing it.  SNA members did not disappoint.  Visit the SNF webpage www.schoolnutritionfoundation.org to see some of the creative photos our athletes posted.

The Top Individual Fundraiser and Most Spirited awards go to Keba Laird from Clinton Public SD, Clinton, Miss.  Keba raised over $2,000 for the SNF, and she did it in style.

The Top Fundraising Team award goes to the School Nutrition Professionals, which raised over $2,000 for the Foundation. The School Nutrition Professionals team members included: JoAnne Robinett, Susan Brooks, Kathleen Burrill, Cathy Uzar and Sarah Glenn.
