All teams had to find the right ingredients for recipes as quickly as possible and which hit a price total between $45 and $50. Before the races, the teams also had to take an ag-related quiz which helped to lower their times.
The Mitchell County Farm Bureau donated up to $50 per team as well as each team donating the food collected. A total of $700 was donated.
