Thanksgiving Meal Drive now under way statewide

RAPID CITY, S.D. –  With the holidays right around the corner, Feeding South Dakota is getting ready to feed as many people this Thanksgiving as possible and they need your help! Thanksgiving meal item donations will be accepted statewide through Nov. 9.

Mary Corbine, with Feeding South Dakota, says children aren’t in school, so they aren’t having their school lunches and breakfast provided to them. That can put a lot more pressure on families this time of year to have more food at home.

This is the eighth year of the Thanksgiving meal drive. The organization’s goal is to feed 3,057 families across the state.

New to the drive this year – long-time supporters Greg and Pam Sands are offering a dollar for dollar match, up to $14,000 for every online donation.

If you would like to make a Thanksgiving meal donation, you can drop it off with Feeding South Dakota in Rapid City.
