Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The annual SHARE food drive will take place at a number of Northland grocery stores, including Mount Royal Fine Foods, Super One, Cub Foods... and the Whole Foods Co–op.

Shoppers will receive a list of items needed most at area food shelves, and are asked to buy one or two items to give to volunteers as they exit the store.

"All the [food shelves] are hurting, so this isn't—by any means—going to set them up to capacity, but it will get them started," said Mt. Royal Fine Foods Manager, Steve Schadewald.

Participating grocery stores will host the SHARE food drive from 8 AM to 4 PM, on Saturday.
