Traulsen and Hobart Announce Second Winner of Save Your Kitchen 2020

In honor of School Lunch Hero Day, ITW Food Equipment Group is proud to announce the second winner of the Save Your Kitchen 2020 campaign sweepstakes. Breckenridge R1 School District from Breckenridge, Missouri, won by random selection the second of four drawings for 2020.
This fifth iteration of the popular K-12 kitchen equipment makeover initiative kicked off in March of this year during National School Breakfast Week. Save Your Kitchen provides free Traulsen and Hobart kitchen equipment to four winning sweepstake entrants in four different drawings throughout the year.
Breckenridge R1 is the second recipient this year of the new kitchen equipment prize package from the Save Your Kitchen campaign. The winning district serves about 64 students from pre-school through 12th grade. They selected a new 8-crate Traulsen milk cooler that is uniquely built with a top-mounted refrigeration system and stainless-steel construction for long equipment life.

The school’s Hobart product selection was the Hobart Legacy Limited Edition Red Mixer. This 20-quart, countertop mixer is ideal for operations with limited space and can handle a variety of ingredients. The exclusive swing out bowl and proven Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) will give Breckenridge schools the convenience and power they need.

“The 2020 Save Your Kitchen Campaign is an opportunity to give to schools that need some help upgrading their kitchens,” said Hailey Elting, Business Development Manager and K-12 Specialist at Traulsen. “Each year we hear from hundreds of schools that need new, upgraded equipment to continue providing nutritious and delicious meals for their students. We get excited about this campaign because we see the direct impact our equipment can have on kitchens in need.”

“We are excited and grateful to Hobart and Traulsen for sponsoring these sweepstakes,” said Breckenridge School Food Service Director Jandy Moore. “I have entered several times since taking this position at Breckenridge School because we are always in need of new equipment. This is a big deal for us to keep up with our students’ food needs.”

The sweepstakes is open to K-12 nutrition professionals in the 50 states and Washington, D.C. Among the products offered in this year’s giveaways are Traulsen refrigerators, a freezer and a milk cooler plus a Hobart food processor, slicer, mixer and dishwasher. Different products may be available for specific drawings. The entry deadline for the third and largest drawing of the year is July 17, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Sweepstake details, entry form, products and other information can be found at
