What is Feeding South Dakota?
Feeding South Dakota provides emergency food assistance to thousands of people in any given week and hundreds of men, women and children every day. Annually, Feeding South Dakota distributes 13.5 million pounds of food, providing hunger relief to all 66 counties in South Dakota. Over 190,000 people receive food through Feeding South Dakota programs every year. This means that more than 11.3 million meals are provided to families, seniors, and individuals across our great state. One of the most critical needs of Feeding South Dakota is securing protein to distribute to those in need. Funding from the Prime Time Gala helps to ensure that hungry individuals have access to protein, providing them with a healthy diet.
