Kids love games, and Jason Bauer is no exception. But the game this 9-year-old likes to play makes it possible to deliver hundreds of dollars of food to local residents in need.

The Glenview third-grader has been playing the “Shop, Play, Win!” Monopoly game at Jewel-Osco every year since he was 4. And every year, he delivers his winnings to the Northfield Township Food Pantry, a nonprofit sustained solely by donations.
