Thousands Go Hungry In South Dakota [VIDEO]

Subscribe to KXRB-AM on

While gathering interviews at Friday”s Faith Temple Food Giveaway, I had an opportunity to talk with Matt Gasson, the Executive Director of Feeding South Dakota.  I captured the interview on video.

Matt says hunger is a reality in every South Dakota community.  “When you look at the hunger numbers, we know that in our state over a hundred thousand individuals are in need of food.  Many of them are children—in fact more than 36,000 children.”

So, what’s the answer?  “There are lots of answers—why are people struggling to make ends meet?  There are many different reasons why that is.  I think the solution to hunger is just as complicated.  For some it’s a matter of being unemployed and for others, it’s not making enough to support a family.  A lot of it can be contributed to major medical conditions—medical bills that put people in severe financial crisis.”

The good news is this:  on going projects like the weekly Faith Temple Food Giveaways are helping hundreds of families throughout the community!  And let’s not forget Feeding South Dakota.  It’s a fact—Feeding South Dakota provides emergency food assistance for an estimated 100,000 people every year!
