Traulsen and Hobart Kick Off Save Your Kitchen 2021

The Sixth Annual Sweepstake Promises to Upgrade the Performance of Four Lucky K-12 Kitchens with New Traulsen and Hobart Equipment.

FORT WORTH, Texas (February 8, 2021) – ITW Food Equipment Group is proud to kick off the Save Your Kitchen 2021 campaign giveaway. This sixth iteration of the popular K-12 kitchen equipment makeover initiative corresponds with this year’s school nutrition events including National School Breakfast Week, School Lunch Hero Week, the SNA Annual National Conference, and National School Lunch Week.

This year’s conference is set to take place in Chicago on July 11-13, 2021. The theme for the campaign features “The Unbeatables” who will be championing justice and K-12 Nutrition. Once again, Save Your Kitchen will provide free Traulsen and Hobart kitchen equipment to four winning sweepstake entrants.

The ITW FEG legendary team of K-12 kitchen crime fighters continue to support K-12 school nutrition professionals. For all the poorly performing, unreliable kitchen equipment out there that has been rampantly committing crimes against K-12 kitchens, special agent, Martin the Carton, and his taskforce of Unbeatables are on the case. They are offering chances for school nutrition pros to upgrade their operational performance and efficiency like never before. Joining “Marty” on the task force will be Sharp Sally Strawberry, Smooth Rich Chocolate, Clean Walter Dishman and Courageous Captain Hobart.

Among the products offered in this year’s giveaways are Traulsen refrigerators, a freezer or a milk cooler plus a Hobart slicer or mixer for all four giveaways, as well as a Hobart AM-style dishmachine for the July drawing only. Different products may be available for specific drawings. The entry deadline for the first drawing is March 12, 2021, to correspond with the National School Breakfast Week. There will be three additional quarterly giveaways in May, July and October. Sweepstake details, entry form, products and other information can be found at
