Save-A-Lot Food Stores introduces the Fuel Your Family Meal Solution Contest, which offers prizes for contestants submitting original family food recipes. Participants can submit a meal solution through the Save-A-Lot website at or by visiting an area store. A meal solution is an original recipe or favorite family meal that features product purchased exclusively at Save-A-Lot and falling into one of seven categories:

  • Breakfast Lunch
  • Dinner Desserts
  • Snacks International
  • Healthy

 Entrants to the recipe contest qualify to win the grand prize, a year’s worth of Save-A-Lot groceries valued at $5,200. Seven runners up will win a $250 Save-A-Lot gift card.  While the Fuel Your Family Meal Solution contest is looking for appetizing recipe ideas, the contest is unique because it celebrates the inspirational stories that surround the cooking experience. Submissions may include recipes created during the Great Depression to cope with the struggling economic situation, and have then been passed down through the generations. Stories may also include recipes designed by moms to get their kids to eat healthier or special recipes reminding shoppers of special cooking moments with their mothers and grandmothers.  “Ultimately, it’s the stories of relationships, moments of connection or special cooking experiences through a meal or recipe that truly celebrate our contest, “said Andrea Wagner, vice president of consumer and brand strategy.  Contestants may submit recipes online at
