It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so that means love must be in the air!

Soon we’ll be feverishly buying cards, candies and flowers for those we love most.

But what if we could share the love with local families in need?

Fortunately, there’s an easy way.

Shop ‘n Save just launched their Love Handles Food Drive. Now through March 2, 2013, you can stop by any St. Louis area Shop ‘n Save location and share a little love by purchasing a $5 bag of food donations.

Each pre-packaged Love Handles bag contains:

  • 14 oz. Essential Everyday Toasted O’s
  • 4 pack of chocolate pudding
  • 5.6 oz. box of beef pasta mix
  • Two cans of chunk light tuna

This may not sound like a feast, but for a family in need, these nutritious items can mean the difference between having a meal and going to bed hungry.

Shop ‘n Save is partnering with radio stations 106.5 the Arch101 ESPN Radio and 92.3 WILto make this food drive a huge success.

Last year, St. Louisans generously donated almost 5,000 Love Handles bags to the St. Louis Area Foodbank and local food pantries. This year, Shop ‘n Save and their partners hope to donate more than 10,000 bags!

You can help make it happen! The next time you’re in Shop ‘n Save, look for the Love Handles display. Grab a bag and pay $5 at the register. The donated food goes straight to those who need it most.

How else can $5 make such a big impact!
