Sioux Falls Group Works To Feed Hungry Kids

Sioux Falls Group Works To Feed Hungry Kids
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Over 500 people from Gloria Dei Church in Sioux Falls are on a mission to feed starving children.

Scoop after scoop, a mixture of rice, soy nuggets and dehydrated vegetables is filled into a bag to be sent to nearly 70 countries all over the world for hungry kids.  The group filled about 100,000 of these bags on Saturday.

And after a long process of finding volunteers and putting the project together, the group is ready to see their hard work in action.

"A lot of kids and a lot of people have put in a lot of hard work for this and seeing it all come together makes up really thankful," participant Sam Monson said.

"This is such a big event and we are helping so many people out. And this is our vision and so it feels really good for all of us to see our hard work paying off," participant Carley Costello

Most of the planning, fundraising and preparation was done by a group of teens at the church.
