UBTC Participates in Breakfast Battle
The Franklin County Farm Bureau recognized National Food Check-Out Week by hosting the 2nd Annual Breakfast Battle at Fareway Grocery Store in Hampton on February 27. The UBTC team consisted of: Tami Brass, Deanna Harms and John Trewin of the Hampton office.
The Breakfast Battle included two races; the first was a competition between nine businesses and the second was a battle between two Tall Corn FFA chapter teams and a Fareway team. Teams consisted of three members each. Team members drew menus for breakfast, dinner and supper Wednesday morning and then raced around the grocery store getting all their recipe ingredients, plus adding in optional food and drinks for a day’s worth of meals to get their cart total between $45 and $50. Teams were timed from the moment they left the cart area until they reached the checkout lane. Time bonuses were given to those that answered trivia questions correctly before the race. Time penalties were given for every dollar over or under the $45 to $50 cart total range. Following the race, twelve Franklin County families that utilize the Franklin County Food Pantry in Hampton and the Immanuel UCC Food Pantry in Latimer received the bags of groceries, which included both perishable and non-perishable items.
