Feeding SD Receives Big Donation


Thanks to a big donation today, Feeding South Dakota will continue to serve needy families in the central part of the state.

Avera Health donated over $126,000 to the organization so it can continue to provide nutritous food through its Mobile Food Pantry that serves a large area of central South Dakota where there are food deserts. 

“I’ve been fortunate enough to see the faces of the children being served by the mobile food pantry in these rural communities, the seniors who have to choose between medications and food,” Central Operations Manager Russ Hoefeldt said. 

The mobile food pantry program began in 2013 and has distributed nearly 3 million pounds of food to needy families.
