ST. LOUIS ( -- A St. Louis grocery store is offering a very easy way to help Afghan refugees working to make the St. Louis are their new home. 

Global Foods market in Kirkwood has launched a gift card program. Starting now through the end of October, shoppers can purchase $25 gift cards to be given to refugee families. 

"It's been a really traumatic experience for them. We're planning on matching up tp $1,500 worth of gift certificates," Shayn Prapaisilp with Global Foods said. "I think for any recent immigrant, the thing they miss the most from home is their food."
