Feeding South Dakota Breaks Record In Food Assistance

Jul 30, 2020 | ,

(KVHT) – Working hard to get food to those in need in the state, Feeding South Dakota has been doubling its efforts since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the area. This week the organization helped a record number of South Dakotans in need of food assistance. While it was not a record they wanted to break, Feeding South Dakota did so when they helped 1,135 families get food. The most for this central distribution center that opened in April because of the pandemic. Matt Gassen is the CEO of Feeding South Dakota. He calls the record breaking week a double-edged sword. He said there’s knowing and being happy that so many are able to be served, but sadness, too, that there are that many people still in need in the midst of all this. Gassen adds that a bit of a fear factor is also in play in that they continue to wonder whether the number is going to continue to grow. The central distribution center at the old Fareway on 41st street is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 7 p.m.
