ECC President Dr. Sam helps Spartan Pantry at the Food Check-Out Challenge (photo slideshow)

Food Check-Out Challenge

15th Annual Kane County Farm Bureau Food Check-Out Challenge Shopping Spree

Elgin Community College President, Dr. David Sam, JD, Ph.D., LLM, was prepared, but didn't quite "win" the 15th Annual Kane County Farm Bureau Food Check-Out Challenge Shopping Spree on Friday, February 26 at the Batavia Jewel-Osco.

While Thomas “T.R.” Smith, District 9 County Board representative and chairman of the Kane County Agriculture Committee, came out as the clear "winner" with more than $900 in groceries, no one really loses. The true winner is area food pantries, and Dr. Sam netted $660 in non-perishable food to stock the Spartan Pantry.

Special thanks to the Kane County Farm Bureau, whose sponsored shopping sprees have donated tens of thousands of dollars in groceries to local food pantries.
