Feeding South Dakota seeing greater demand following shutdown

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSOO) – Feeding South Dakota is experiencing a greater demand for food after South Dakotas who qualify for EBT, also knowns as food stamps, saw a delay in funding, following the recent Government Shutdown.

Jennifer Stensaas is with Feeding South Dakota.

The increased need for food continues, and donations to Feeding South Dakota are needed.

Because of the buying power that Feeding South Dakota has established, cash donations equate to the largest amount of food per dollar.

With the greater demand, comes a need for volunteers:

Feeding South Dakota distributed 12.2 million pounds of food in 2018. The organization serves 21 thousand South Dakotans weekly through their food assistance programs across the state.
