More than 1,000 people took part in the 5K run-walk through the streets of Culver City. The event was organized by SnackNation, the Culver City-based “better-for-you snack marketplace,” and co-sponsored by the city of Culver City. In observance of Hunger Action Month, SnackNation is helping raise money for Feeding America, SnackNation’s ongoing charity partner, and local Culver City charity Backpacks for Kids.
