ST. CHARLES, Ill. — Two contestants will “compete” in a 5-minute non-perishable grocery shopping spree to benefit a local food pantry of their choice.
Since their inception, Kane County Farm Bureau sponsored Shopping Sprees have donated tens of thousands of dollars in groceries to local food pantries. The Shopping Spree compliments KCFB’s Harvest for ALL program, where farmers and non-farmers contribute crop proceeds, cash and in-kind donations to food pantries of their choice.
In 2014, the hunger relief efforts of Kane County Farm Bureau members earned the association the Service Club Philanthropic Award from the West Suburban Philanthropic Network and a County Activity of Excellence Award from the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Reporters and photographers are encouraged to attend. Kane County farmers will be available for interviews at the event. The Food Check-Out Challenge is sponsored by Kane County Farm Bureau.
Event: 16th Annual KCFB Food Check-Out Challenge Shopping Spree

When: Monday, February 20 at 10:30 a.m.
