2023 Spectacular Sandwich Throwdown

Welcome to the 1st annual SNIP Culinary Contest! Participating school nutrition departments across the US are throwing down to see who serves the best sandwich in their school cafeteria.
Vote! During the month of March we will collect votes. You may only vote 1 time by entering your email address on the website. Vote on your favorite sandwich/district/team.
Donate to the cause! All participating districts will be a winner with this Throwdown! The money collected through donations will be distributed to all participants based on each one’s percentage of overall votes. Donations will be used to pay off unpaid student meal debt and all donations will be listed on the website.
 
The participating districts have combined over $800,000 in unpaid meal charges. Your donations will help struggling families nationwide!
 
Bonus way to participate…. Share, share, share!!! Share with everyone in your circle to increase awareness of the issues we are up against since the COVID waivers were not extended that allowed free meals for all. Share to show off the amazing food that is delicious and healthy that we are serving our students. Share to increase donations and participation! Thanks for being a school lunch hero!

Food insecurity is high throughout Missouri. Without regular, healthy food, kids don't grow and develop as they should, can't concentrate in school, and have poorer outcomes overall. Thank you to all who are supporting this worthy cause.
