Kyla Moffat had meat at the top of her grocery list Tuesday morning after she won a 60-second shopping spree at Liberty Foods.

Meat and cheese top list for Fruitvale shopping spree!

Kyla Moffat, of Trail, was the lucky local winner of the Great Grocery Giveaway contest held by AG Foods.

She didn’t quite shop-til-she-dropped but Kyla Moffat’s heart was beating a little bit faster after she had 60 seconds to fill her cart with groceries at Liberty Foods on Tuesday morning.

Moffat, of Trail, was the lucky local winner of the Great Grocery Giveaway contest held by AG Foods.

Her mother, Melva Scott, entered her daughter’s name in the contest, which ran for about five weeks at Liberty Foods in Fruitvale and all other participating AG Foods outlets.

Steven Hall, the social media marketing coordinator at Liberty Foods, said the store had too many entries to count over the course of the contest.

But when the call came that she had won, Moffat admitted she had to do some planning.

“I came on the weekend and mapped it out. I’ve been trying to time out 60 seconds for a few days now.”

Moffat had one minute to stuff as many items into her shopping cart up to $500 worth of groceries.

She easily topped that as she strategically darted down the aisles at Liberty Foods with three items in mind.

“Meat and cheese, meat and cheese and coffee,” she said.

After loading up on coffee just past the start line, Moffat made a beeline for the cheese selection then stormed along the back aisle stuffing as much meat as she could in her cart.

Afterwards as the boxes of groceries added up, she said she has already made room in her freezer for the grocery haul.

All that’s left, she said, was to bring some to her parents’ house so she can enjoy her mother’s cooking.

Hall said the giveaway wasn’t limited to one big prize. Other local contest winners won appliances and in-store prizes.
