Feeding South Dakota Starts $6 Million Dollar Campaign

Using a half million dollar grant as a starting point, Feeding South Dakota wants to raise six million dollars to expand their hunger relief services across the state.

Executive Director Matt Gassen says they need more space at their facilities in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City………

Gassen says they need the space because of changes in the types of food they can get…………….

The half million dollar grant is from the John T.Vucurevich Foundation.

Gassen says the demand on their services continues to grow…

Last year, Feeding South Dakota distributed over twelve million pounds of food, providing over ten million meals. Gassen says their goal is to cut the hunger gap in the state by fifty percent, which means they will provide nearly sixteen million meals by 2020.
