Supermarket Sweep benefits Food Bank.

American 1 rings up their food at Felpausch.

Felpausch Food Stores and American 1 Federal Credit Union teamed up for the Jackson Media Supermarket Sweep, benefitting the Food Bank of Southcentral Michigan.

Six teams raced around Felpausch collecting tagged food items that were donated to the Food Bank. Each team was given a list of groceries and had five minutes to collect as many as they could.

The Salesman team won again this year, with American 1’s team placing second and K105.3’s team coming in third. Lansing’s Q106, a new team this year, earned the “Wobbly Wheel” award by grabbing the fewest items.

“In these tough economic times, every little bit helps,” Teresa Osborne, operation director for the Food Bank, said.

Felpausch is accepting donations through April for the Food Bank. Customers can drop off food items purchased at the store in marked bins.
