2018 MGA Bipartisan Bag-Off

The Minnesota Grocers Association (MGA) hosted its second Annual Bipartisan Bag-Off on Tuesday, March 6 at the Minnesota State Capitol. This event highlighted the Minnesota food industry and the impact it has on serving consumers, providing careers, and investing in its communities. The Bag-Off featured four legislators, Laura Bakk filling in for her husband, Senator Tom Bakk (D-Cook), House Minority Leader Melissa Hortman (D-Brooklyn Park), Representative Ron Kresha (R-Little Falls), and Senator Jeremy Miller (R-Winona), who competed with Minnesota’s 2017 Best Bagger Caleb Meyer of Kowalski’s Market, Oak Grove Heights.

Keeping the trophy in his caucus, Representative Kresha won the competition with speed and weight distribution. He was presented a trophy and $1,000 to donate to a food charity of his choice within his district.
