Feeding South Dakota Raising $6 Million
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Feeding South Dakota hunger relief organization is launching a $6 million statewide capital campaign to boost facilities and services.
The organization is trying to reach a goal of providing 16 million meals by 2020 — an increase of about 5 million meals from what’s provided now throughout the state.
Feeding South Dakota wants larger and more efficient facilities in Rapid City, Pierre and Sioux Falls. A $500,000 matching grant from the John T. Vucurevich Foundation announced Friday is being used for the Rapid City facility.
The organization says it also is working to grow its mobile distribution, school and volunteer programs.
