Sophomore Leads High School To Feed Thousands

October 22, 2012, 5:13 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Some Sioux Falls students are feeding 150,000 hungry people Monday, all thanks to the effort of one high school sophomore.

Karl Shlanta organized a packing day with Feeding South Dakota as part of his Eagle Scout project.  He got his entire O'Gorman High School involved, along with hundreds of volunteers and raised thousands of dollars. 

The food will go to feed the hungry in both Africa and through South Dakota's Backpack program. 

"They get to be out of class for a little bit and hang out with their friends. We like it to because it shows how fun their faith can be and how active it should be," Jonathan Konz with the O'Gorman Campus Ministry said.

"I was nervous at the beginning.  Everything is going as planned.  I'm happy to say the least," Shlanta said.

KELOLAND's Angela Kennecke has been following Karl through his efforts to raise funds and make this project a reality.  She'll bring you more on the story Wednesday night on Eye on KELOLAND at Ten.
