Winston Foodservice is pleased to announce the winning recipient of its annual Winston Equipment Grant Award. The recipient for 2019 is Franklin Special School District (SSD) in Tennessee.
This annual grant program was established in partnership with the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) to help schools in need serve hot, nutritious meals to their students. Grant recipients may choose any 10 pieces of Winston’s CVap® equipment, collectively valued at approximately $50,000. The selected district decides which pieces best suit their unique needs.
Although Winston Foodservice provides the equipment for the grant, the company is not involved in selecting which district ultimately receives it.
School districts were encouraged to apply for the grant by submitting videos detailing their needs. Franklin SSD’s submission revealed how the district was struggling to properly feed their students, using old equipment in various states of disrepair. The district has been forced to spend over $40,000 in equipment repairs over the last three years, but still struggles with broken equipment.
