SIOUX FALL, S.D. (KELO AM) - When Matt Gasson with Feeding South Dakota says 2013 was a good year, unfortunately it means there was more hunger.
Gasson says feeding the hungry will always be a challenge. He says the largest charitable relief organization operates three warehouses in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City.
Gasson says Feeding South Dakota provides food to 350 non-profit organizations who give it to families in need.
He says about 125 Sioux Falls organizations get blank referral cards from Feeding South Dakota that they give to the food challanged. With the card, residents can access the Sioux Falls pantry for hunger relief. He says it's up to the community to decide who should receive food assistance
The best way to donate to Feeding South Dakota is cash because they can provide five meals for every dollar donated. But, Gasson says, if you want to donate food that's okay too.
