Bringing Food to Communities
Children and adults face hunger in every community across the country. Your neighbor, child’s classmate or even co-worker may be struggling to get enough to eat.
Our Mobile Food Distribution Program allows us to go where hunger is, instead of hunger having to find us.
Each month, South Dakotans facing hunger can receive grocery boxes pre-packed with nutritious foods such as fresh or frozen produce, meat, shelf-stable items, dairy products, boxed meals, and more. The food items are donated to us through the USDA's The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) and other sources both locally and nationally. These distributions supplement the work of agency partner pantries, shelters and meal sites operating in fixed locations.
Distribution sites are hosted by a Feeding South Dakota partner and are set up drive-through style, where volunteers load food directly into the vehicles of those utilizing the program. All in need of food assistance are welcome to come and receive food at no cost to them.
