March is here, and that means it's Minnesota Food Share Month.

The Salvation Army Food Shelf is one of nearly 300 groups in the state that can double donations this month. Soup and other canned goods are always welcome, but Program Supervisor Nancy Leslie said cash can actually go a lot father.

"For every dollar you give us we can take that dollar to Second Harvest Food Bank and buy things at 14 cents a pound," she said. "We can get a case of cereal, which could have 12 to 14 boxes of cereal in it, for under $3."

She said donations can be dropped off at the Salvation Army in West Duluth or credit card donations can be taken over the phone.
