Feeding South Dakota Launching Mobile Food Program

Feeding South Dakota is launching a mobile food pantry program to help hungry residents and families living in the most rural areas of South Dakota.

The organization says the program kicking off Wednesday will distribute 650,000 pounds of food each year, providing nearly 550,000 meals to individuals and families in need.

Distributions are planned for McIntosh, Little Eagle, Ipswich, Redfield, Cherry Creek, Lower Brule, Reliance, Wanblee, Martin/Tuthill, Parmelee, Fort Thompson and St. Francis. Organization executives say other communities may be added depending on need.

About 7,000 pounds of food will be provided at each distribution, allowing families to receive five-day supplies of food.

Feeding South Dakota through offices in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City provides food and money to 450 organizations across the state.
