RAPID CITY, S.D. – Record-high grocery prices are impacting more South Dakotans. During this Thanksgiving season, Feeding South Dakota will distribute enough supplies for 6,000 meals. That is 1,000 meals more than what the organization provided last year.
The meals will be distributed Saturday, Nov. 19, from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. or until all the meals are gone. In Rapid City, the distribution will be at the Central States Fairgrounds. People need to enter the fairgrounds from San Francisco Street. No pre-registration or sign up is required. There is a limit of two families served per vehicle.
To help feed families, Greg and Pam Sands of Sands Drywall Systems are providing a dollar-for-dollar matching gift of $25,000. Every $25 donation to Feeding South Dakota through Nov. 24 will provide two families with turkeys and ingredients for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
To donate to the match campaign or for more information about Feeding South Dakota’s Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway visit feedingsouthdakota.org or call 605-335-0364.
