SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) – As the sun rose Saturday morning, cars lined up at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds to pick up a Thanksgiving meal.

Feeding South Dakota had their annual Thanksgiving meal distribution today.

The first 750 people at the fairgrounds this morning got a turkey and fixings for a holiday meal. Volunteers started getting ready for the distribution around 5:30 this morning.

“You know, I think it’s just the joy of seeing the people and the way they react when they get this meal provided to them. And I think this year is going to even be better because of everything that these families have been going through,” CEO of Feeding South Dakota Matt Gassen said.

Distributions were also happening in Pierre and Rapid City today.
