Marquette Food Co-Op Has their Own 'Supermarket Sweep'

The Marquette Food Co-Op celebrated Co-Op month with their very own version of the classic game show, Supermarket Sweep.

“I think for us, the Co-Op exists because we have a mission,” said Co-Op outreach director Sarah Monte. “To bring good food, local food, organic food to the community. Sometimes that can feel a little bit heavy. There's a sense of duty over the importance of our food choices, but you know what? Eating is also just really fun, and we wanted to capture that spirit.”Throughout the month games and activities at the Co-Op have brought the list of contestants down to two, and Tuesday afternoon those two went on a two-minute sweep of the Co-Op. The contestants had to fill up their carts with items from around the store, seeing who could get a total closest to $250. The winner then got to keep everything in their kart.

The winner, with a total of $211 was Katie LeClair. Nathan Mapes came up short with $146.
