Feeding South Dakota back to neighborhood food distribution this weekend

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Non-profit Feeding South Dakota is returning to their regular food distribution within Rapid City neighborhoods.

Agency Relations Coordinator, Mary Corbine, says the mobile pantry had set up at Central States Fairgrounds the last several months of the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide one point of contact for those in need of grocery items. Now, with the fair in progress, it seemed to be the perfect time to return to “normal.”

Volunteers are still wearing masks and latex gloves while avoiding contact with the public.

Folks can drive up to each spot in the delivery line to collect items such as dairy and fruits. For those that aren’t able to pop open their trunks there are even self-service stations.

“You know there is a great need for charitable food donations right now,” says Corbine. “Especially during the pandemic, the need continues to grow. Things are changing every day and Feeding South Dakota is working hard to keep up with that need.”
