United Way board members spent about an hour shopping at Hy-Vee trying to get enough food to feed a family of four for one week for $121. They had to weigh variables such as price, nutritional value, or fresh versus frozen. In the end, they came in just a few cents under their $121 limit. Shown here are (from left) Ridley CEO Steve Von Roekel, Blue Earth County Administrator Bob Meyer, Abdo Eick and Meyers accountant Chris Powers and Barb Kaus of Carlson Craft.
