Dead last at Supermarket Sweep, and loving it.

Wobbly Wheel winners Wendy, Katie, and me.

Eleven teams raced through Felpausch Food Centers on Tuesday for our annual Media Supermarket Sweep. All the food teams collect is given to the Food Bank of Southcentral Michigan, who then turns it over to our local Salvation Army food bank.

Last year our American 1 team did pretty well. This year? Dead last. We earned the Wobbly Wheel award after grabbing only 46 of the 60 or so food items scattered throughout the store.

Oh well. We did it for a good cause, and all of our branches collected two shopping carts full of food besides what we collected during the sweep.

The Salesman team won again, with WLNS Channel 6 taking second at the Jackson Citizen Patriot team taking third.

“We’d like to thank the Jackson Felpausch for graciously opening up their store for the Sweep, and Spartan Stores and American 1 for their support as well,” said Dan Salerno, the Food Bank of South Central Michigan’s director of development. “Ultimately it’s needy households in Jackson that are the winners, receiving a real boost from the food picked up today.”

That’s right. Next year, we’ll try to make sure we “boost” our total for the Food Bank.
