Youth and Family Services team up with Great Harvest to give to those in need

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Youth and Family Services in Rapid City is getting a head start on its summer meal plan program.

The meal program helps hundreds of families during the summer weekdays, but YFS is working to provide for those most in need now. To lend a helping hand, Great Harvest Bread Co. has been baking bread for the meals program, more than 150 loaves over the last couple of weeks. Like many businesses, Great Harvest just wants to give back to the community.

Marsha Hengen, Owner of Great Harvest Bread Co., said “Since we closed our lobby to any seating or anything, it has been very slow. We are just doing the best that we can, just like everybody else is. Trying to be supportive of our community and do what we can when we can.”

Great Harvest has also established a shutdown shelf, allowing people in need to come in and take a loaf of bread.
