Sanaa’s Restaurant is located at 401 E. 8th Street in Sioux Falls, in the 8th and Railroad Center group of retail stores.

Student volunteers from O’Gorman High School have agreed to pitch in to help with clean up and with customer assistance during the dinner.  Employees of Feeding South Dakota will be on hand to collect the contributions of money and food.

Former Miss Teenage South Dakota will also be on hand to greet donors who will attend the fundraising dinner.

About Feeding South Dakota

Feeding South Dakota is the state’s largest charitable hunger relief organization whose mission is to eliminate hunger in South Dakota with distribution centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City. In 2011, Feeding South Dakota secured and distributed 12.2 million pounds of quality nutritious donated and purchased food, along with other surplus items through a network of over 450 charitable organizations across the state.
