Local Food Pantry Benefits From Grocery Grab

LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- It seemed like a scene out of the old show Supermarket Sweep Saturday at one Loves Park grocery store as one person experienced the rush of grabbing as much food as possible in just a few minutes.

The Loves Park Lions Club hosted its annual Grocery Grab Challenge at Valli Produce. Sharon Glawe won $1,000 worth of groceries after Jose Loredo collected enough groceries in just two minutes. Loredo was representing Helping Hands Pantry, a place Glawe thought needed the food more than she does.

"Once I found out that I won, the next day it hit me and I said 'oh my gosh, I don't know what to do with that. I've got to donate that to the pantry,'" Glawe said.
Terri Bailey and Karissa Swanson also won $100 and $50 gift cards for finishing in second and third in the drawing.
