Minnesota Farmers Campaign Launches 2nd Sweepstakes
ST. PAUL (AP) -- A consumer education campaign on behalf of Minnesota farmers is offering free tickets to Gopher men's basketball games and free groceries from Cub Foods in its latest sweepstakes.
Minnesota Farmers Feed US features farmers showing how they produce safe, nutritious and affordable food. More than 75,000 Minnesotans registered for its first sweepstakes, which ended in November. Two people each won $5,000 in free groceries.
Consumers who visit the campaign's web site can take online tours of Minnesota farms. They can also register for their choice of grand prize options - a $500 Cub Foods gift card or a chance to bring 20 people to watch the Gophers-Penn State basketball game from a suite at Williams Arena on March 6.
Minnesotans can register through Feb. 28 at http://www.farmersfeedus.org/mn .
