Shreveport Parks and Recreation, affectionately known as SPAR, is always active bringing the latest and greatest to Shreveport.

Their latest endeavor is to ensure the pantry is stocked at the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.

The food drive runs through Monday, February 17 and we hope you can help! Here's more courtesy of Becky Berry at SPAR:

Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation (SPAR) announce their annual canned food drive benefitting the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. The canned food drive kicks off Friday, January 17, 2014 and runs through Monday, February 17, 2014.
