Minnesota Wild Players and Cub Foods Support Second Harvest

TILLWATER, Minn. — The Cub Foods grocery store in Eagan's Diffley Marketplace turned "wild in the aisles" on Feb. 20 as Minnesota Wild players and Cub Foods customers teamed up for Second Harvest Heartland Food Bank.

Three teams raced through the grocery aisles, putting food into their carts. Together the teams raised $3,559.24 in groceries. Cub Foods donated another $4,440.76 for a total donation amount of $8,000.00 going to Second Harvest.

Contestants were chosen at random from an in-store drawing held during grand opening week at Cub's newest store in Eagan.

Cub Foods provides consumers with the freshest produce, widest selection and greatest value available. In addition to innovative natural, ethnic and certified organic food sections, Cub stores offer shoppers added conveniences, such as in-store pharmacy and banking. Cub Foods was established in 1968 as one of the nation's first discount grocery stores. The organization was purchased in 1980 by SUPERVALU and currently operates 58 stores in the Twin Cities.

This sounds like a fun way to raise supplies, funds and awareness for a worthwhile cause. Kudos to Cub Foods and the Minnesota Wild players for their involvement.
