A South Dakota hunger relief organization will relocate its food distribution center to a larger building in Pierre in response to growing operational and space needs.
Feeding South Dakota said Monday it's aiming to raise $1 million for the move. The statewide organization serves 24 counties in the central part of South Dakota and gives out more than 1.5 million pounds of food each year from Pierre alone.
Feeding South Dakota distributed 12.5 million pounds of food across the state last year, including more than 10.4 million meals. It says it hopes to provide 16 million meals by 2020.
The organization will eventually try to raise about $3 million for a 40,000-50,000 square foot facility in Sioux Falls.
