Next week, you're going to be able to help people who need some food and get yourself a discount in the process.

Feeding Missouri is a coalition of the six Missouri Food Banks working to provide hunger relief to every county (and St. Louis City) in the state. Collectively, they distribute over 120 million pounds of food each year through a network of more than 1,500 community feeding programs.  Our local Food Bank representative, Darren White, will also be out taking donations. Here's the lowdown:
Missouri Farmers Care Food Drive $2 Tuesday with canned food donations to benefit Feeding Missouri 
Adult & Senior Admission Discount: Bring a minimum donation of 2 cans of food to support the food drive and receive $2 admission, ages 13+, Tuesday only
Regular admission prices apply with no can donation ($10, ages 13+)
Carnival Discount: Most carnival rides $2 all day * some exclusions may apply
Vendor/Concession Discount: $2 specials at select concessions & vendors
$5 after 5 p.m. Cannot combine with other promotions/coupon Gate admission $5 after 5 pm, Aug 12-16.  
So go through your pantry and pick up a couple of cans.  I mean, do you really need four cans of black beans? Are you actually going to make that black bean dip? No. You saw it on the internet and promptly forgot where you saw the recipe.  Donate them! See those carrots? Your eyes are just fine. Donate them! See that can of sliced pineapple?  Sure, you were gonna grill em up with your chicken, but you forgot. And it's kinda too hot to grill now, anyway.  So donate them!  You get the good feeling of helping someone out and your wallet will thank you.  And that's another few bucks in Corn Dog money!
Donatingly yours,
Behka
