Last weekend Grainful was a supporting sponsor of the Selfless Elf 5k in Corning, NY. The event is coordinated by the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, which services one-in-four Southern Tier residents each year.

In its second year, the race yielded 1,250 participants and the Grainful team was there to give out samples of the Vegetarian Chili. Both runners and spectators alongside were decked out in holiday-themed outfits to celebrate the season and the Grainful team was no different. Check out some photos from the event below!
