SHFM GIVES BACKSHFM is dedicated to helping those in need in the foodservice and hospitalities industries. Please consider supporting these initiatives.
Hunger Awareness Initiative
Each year SHFM conference attendees come together during our annual hunger awareness activity for an afternoon of fun and networking. In addition to providing an entertaining event, this portion of conference also offers an opportunity for SHFM to give back to the local community. Thanks to the generosity of SHFM members we have raised thousands of dollars to support local hunger initiatives.
With the enormous success of previous years, you won’t want to miss this year’s event on Wednesday, September 18th from 4:45pm – 6:30 pm. We’ll be going back to the traditional Hunger Games format; attendees will be placed on a team to compete in four activities with the goal of earning points. The team earning the most points wins! And best of all, proceeds from this year’s event benefit Food Now, a Palm Springs organization that distributes healthy meals to food insecure communities through their child backpacks, homeless happy meals and food for pets.
Check out Food Now’s Website and video to learn more.
We look forward to you joining us for this fun filled event!
Make sure you register to participate in this exciting event!
Special Thank You to Our Current Hunger Games Sponsors!

The SHFM Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports higher education through scholarships and student outreach programs. The Foundation is committed to the continued growth of our vital industry, which drives productivity and morale for millions of American workers every day. The Foundation offers scholarships to students that have gained acceptance into a full-time restaurant/foodservice or hospitality-related post-secondary program.
In addition to scholarships, the Foundation offers funding to colleges/universities that offer or are interested in offering a corporate foodservice or workplace hospitality course. Several schools are awarded this grant. The Foundation holds several events throughout the year to raise funds for these very important programs. At the 2019 National Conference the Foundation is supporting the following events.
