STURGIS, S.D. –
The Sturgis Kiwanis Food Pantry Annual Food Drive will be conducted on Saturday, October 29.
Spokesman Richard Deaver says because of the rise in food prices, they have seen a spike in the number of families seeking food assistance. In addition, food and monetary donation have decreased.
Deaver says normally, monthly donations are larger than the cost of food to keep their shelves filled. That has not been the case this year.
There are three locations to drop off your monetary donations on Saturday. They are the Grocery Mart parking lot, the Sturgis Elementary School drive through off Ball Park Road across from the fire station and the Sturgis Kiwanis Food Pantry on Sixth Street. Monetary donations are also being accepted.
The Sturgis Kiwanis Food Pantry serves the needy in Meade County.
