Items on the shelves of local food pantries are in high demand in the summer, which is why local insurance companies are coming together to help the Sioux Falls Food Pantry and Feeding South Dakota.
Progressive Insurance is collecting non-perishable food items at several locations and hope to turn the effort into an annual event. This year, the donations are being collected at three locations beginning with Kouri Insurance Tuesday on South Minnesota from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
