Walk With a Purpose

Kick off your party shoes and tie on your sneakers for the School Nutrition Foundation’s Walk With a Purpose!** April 15 - 22, 2021

Want to have fun, take care of your own mental and physical wellness and support the School Nutrition Foundation at the same time? Then join your fellow school nutrition colleagues for the first annual “Walk With a Purpose” 5K Walkathon.

Every. Single. Day. YOU make a difference in the lives of students and their families. For over a year when schools closed due to COVID-19, you worked on the frontline - night and day, in sweltering heat, frigid temperatures and torrential downpours to ensure that children who depend on school meals don’t go hungry.

Now it’s your time.

Let’s get walking!

SNF’s first-ever virtual fundraising walk will join school nutrition professionals and SNA industry members from across the United States. You’ll form teams, compete for prizes, raise funds and walk straight into Spring and more hopeful times ahead. Here’s how:

  1. Commit to doing something for yourself.
  2. Register Here!
  3. Ask your friends, family and colleagues to support you.
  4. Walk, jog, run, dance, or skip a 5K distance (3.1 miles) during the week of April 15-22, 2021.

Your involvement is critical to our success. Thank you again for your support and for participating in our 5K Walkathon.

**Out of an abundance of concern about the health and safety of our sponsors, participants, volunteers and staff, we will be transitioning SNF’s annual Party With a Purpose (held at SNA’s national conferences) to a virtual Walk With a Purpose.”

SNF provides resources to school nutrition professionals that enable them to feed more children and grow professionally, engage the community in a better understanding of the value of school meals, and help students develop life-long healthy eating habits.
