Food Giveaway announces schedule for December and January

Feeding South Dakota and the Sanborn County Food Pantry want to inform Sanborn County residents that the next Food Giveaway will be held Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 5 p.m. (until food is gone).

The Food Giveaway provides free food to families in need. The free food includes assorted frozen and fresh produce, frozen meats, assorted breads and assorted canned and boxed items. 

Boxes for food will be available, but recipients are encouraged to bring their own. There is no entry to the Food Giveaway before 4:45 p.m. Participants are asked to call ahead at 796-4516 or 796-4513 if the weather is unfavorable.

December is also the time for the Christmas Box Giveaway. The list of those to receive Christmas boxes comes from various sources in the community or if a resident has requested a box at the courthouse prior during the year. Names are kept confidential. The Christmas box deliveries will be made on Dec. 19.

As a reminder, due to the timing of the holidays and the Christmas box giveaway just a few days prior to Christmas day, there is no Food Giveaway in January. Anyone can go to the Sanborn County courthouse for a box in January or anytime they have a need.

Feeding South Dakota is a statewide organization with locations in Pierre, Rapid City and Sioux Falls. Their mission is to eliminate hunger in South Dakota. For more information or to make a donation to support food giveaways, please visit feedingsouthdakota.org.
