New Supermarket Sweep location collects $1,600 worth of groceries

Supermarket Sweep - American 1 gets third

Since Felpausch is closed in Jackson, we switched our annual media Supermarket Sweep location to the Polly’s Country Market on Ferguson Rd.

The teams weren’t dismayed by the new location, however, collecting 576 grocery items worth $1,677.27 for the Food Bank of South Central Michigan on Tuesday, April 14.

Twelve teams raced around Country Market collecting specific food items. Most teams were made up of local media companies, like the Jackson Citizen Patriot, Jackson Magazine, The Salesman, and JTV.

Our own American 1 team certainly did better than last year: Shandi, Janelle, and Tina (above) earned third place by collecting 55 items worth $157.64.

“There are no losers in this event,” said Bob Randels, Executive Director of the Food Bank of South Central Michigan. “Every can of food that is collected goes to feed a hungry person and doing that makes them all winners.”
