For The Observer

The foodies at Kimball Health Services and Kimball Public Schools collected all of this (691 food items) to help the local food bank.

The winner of the inaugural Kimball Fill the Food Pantry Cart Challenge is Kimball Health Services.

The final score was KHS 490, Kimball Public Public Schools 201.

That's how many food items each side collected in the friendly battle to help the local food bank.

Stephanie Pedersen of KHS human resources said the competition evolved after she read an article about the food bank being low on food.

She thought about a challenge between KHS departments.

Then she talked with her husband, Chauncey.

"He suggested I contact Katie Culek at Kimball High School and see if she might be interested in helping me create a challenge between the two of us," Stephanie explained. "So after a short brainstorm period, we created the first annual Fill the Food Pantry Cart Challenge between Kimball Health Services staff and Kimball Public Schools staff.

"We placed shopping carts that were loaned to us by Main Street Market at both schools and both hospital locations."

It all went down Sept. 23-27.

In addition to bragging rights, doughnuts went to the winning KHS foodies.
