Mindful Mile & Fight Hunger 5k

In addition to health and wellness initiatives, Sodexo has a strong focus on supporting the fight against hunger in local communities. That's why the SUNY Oneonta Sodexo team has partnered with the Riverside Back Pack Program. The Riverside Action Hero Backpack Program provides food for 107 Riverside children on the weekends. Nearly 50% of the Riverside families receive backpacks and the program is completely funded by donations from within the Oneonta community. We've combined two important causes into one impactful, engaging and fun community event. All proceeds from this event will be donated to this worthy cause.
