The five holiday feasts feature three complete traditional meals comprised of main dishes, sides, desserts, and beverages; and two meal plans for traditional parties, one for the holiday hors d'oeuvres celebrations, and the other covering desserts.

"These are very difficult times for many Americans," said Bill Shaner, president/c.e.o. of the St. Louis-based Save-A-Lot, which has stores in 39 states. "We developed these meal plans to make our customer's shopping trip and meal preparation quick, convenient, and cost- effective. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our customers and their families can celebrate their holiday tradition -- whether it's Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanza -- with great food at great prices."
