Feeding South Dakota distributes donated and purchased food from distribution centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre, and Rapid City and through its network of agency partners statewide.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Feeding South Dakota announced on Friday that they have received a $12,000 donation from the South Dakota Elks Association to help support their hunger relief initatives. The funds will be used to provide 36,000 meals across various programs.

“We are extremely grateful to the South Dakota Elks Association for their support of the very important work we do, ensuring no one goes hungry in South Dakota,” says Christina Oey, Development Director for Feeding South Dakota.

The Elks Association says that Feeding South Dakota was chosen due to their hard work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Individually, we have all seen the work being done across the state. The pandemic has brought this all to the forefront and made everyone aware of the need that you serve,” said Tom Adams, the current State President of the South Dakota Elks Association. “We thought that our donation might be helpful.”

Feeding South Dakota is South Dakota’s largest charitable hunger relief organization and distributed nearly 16.7 million pounds of food in fiscal year 2020. For more information on FSD and its programs, visit them online here.
