SIOUX FALLS, S.D.–Feeding South Dakota, the state’s largest hunger-relief organization, will provide food for Thanksgiving Meal giveaways across the state for the 12th year in a row.
“Record-high prices have impacted so many families in South Dakota,” CEO Lori Dykstra shared. “We want to do everything possible to make sure that these families can make memories around a holiday meal.”
The organization is planning to distribute supplies for 6,000 meals across the state, an increase of 1,000 meals over last year’s giveaway.
In Sioux Falls and Rapid City 1,500 meals will be distributed; and Pierre Area Referral Services (PARS) will distribute 350 turkey breasts to Pierre and Fort Pierre families.
The remainder of the meal items have been made available to Feeding South Dakota’s Agency Partners to host a Thanksgiving Meal giveaway in their community.
