With school back in session, Traulsen and Hobart are looking to bolster school kitchens with new equipment. The leader in commercial refrigeration and the premier foodservice equipment manufacturer are wrapping up the fourth year of the annual kitchen equipment sweepstakes known as Save Your Kitchen, which is open to K-12 nutrition professionals in the U.S.

Upon entry, school nutrition professionals have the chance to be a “school super hero” and rescue one of their school kitchens by winning a Traulsen refrigeration unit of their choice out of the following options – a One-Section Reach-In Refrigerator (RHT132WUT), a One-Section Pass-Thru Refrigerator (RHT132WPUT), a One-Section Reach-In Freezer (RLT132WUT), or an eight-crate Milk Cooler (RMC34S4). Additionally, the winning school will receive its choice of one piece of food preparation equipment from the following Hobart models: an HCC34 Food Processor, an EDGE 13A-11 Slicer, or a limited edition (red) Hobart Legacy 20-quart HL 200 Mixer.

“This year’s Save Your Kitchen contest has been a wonderful success so far and we can’t wait to learn who the next school hero will be,” says Hailey Elting, Sales Development Manager and K-12 Specialist at Traulsen. “As a proud supporter of school kitchens, we hope as many schools as possible, including those who registered for earlier drawings, will enter again for a chance to win this last drawing of the year.”

Three schools have already won in 2019, with the final winner to be selected during National School Lunch Week during October. The first drawing, held in March during National School Breakfast Week, was won by the Harlem School District in Machesney Park, Illinois. The second drawing, held in May during School Lunch Hero Day, was won by the Taylor County School District in Butler, Georgia. For the National School Nutrition Association National Conference in July, Foley Public Schools in Foley, Minnesota won the third and largest drawing of the year as it included a Hobart dish machine.

Schools can learn more and enter the Save Your Kitchen drawings at its website. Entries are free and winners are chosen randomly.
