An Iowa family will enjoy a year of free groceries from its local Hy-Vee supermarket through the America Needs Farmers $5,000 Great Grocery Giveaway.

Winner Tracy Queen of Webster City, Iowa, is a civil clerk at the sheriff’s office, photographer for the local paper and the mother of three children. Queen and her husband, Phil, visited the website for a chance to win and took the website’s interactive farm tour.

“I loved being able to learn more about the Iowa farm families that are producing our food,” Queen said. “Before taking off-the-farm jobs, my parents farmed, so I have the utmost respect and appreciation for farmers. We enjoyed the website tour of Stephanie Dykshorn’s dairy farm in western Iowa.”

The giveaway was courtesy of Iowa farmers and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, a statewide group with more than 153,000 members.
