Kane County Farm Bureau's Shopping Spree February 17!
Senator Jim Oberweis and Representative Dan Ugaste of St. Charles were among the participants in the Food Checkout Day Shopping Spree sponsored by the Kane County Farm Bureau on February 17.
Food Check-Out Day is marked each year by the Kane County Farm Bureau with a Shopping Spree between local public officials to benefit local food pantries.
Each official is given five minutes to race to collect as many non-perishable groceries as possible for their food pantry. At the end of the shopping spree, each competitor’s groceries are tallied and a winner is declared (all in good fun of course).
Donations of non-perishable food items are also collected on site throughout the day for the Northern Illinois Food Bank to benefit food pantries throughout Kane County.
