Hunger is Curable

Every day, more than 106,000 people in South Dakota are at risk of going hungry. One of 8 individuals and 1 of 6 children are food insecure, meaning they might not know where their next meal will come from.

Right here in Aberdeen there are men, women and children who are suffering from hunger. We are here to help.

  

We Help the People Behind the Numbers

Hunger goes beyond statistics. While the effects of hunger aren't always obvious, the truth is, real people in Aberdeen suffer from hunger. We strive to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community do not go hungry.

  

How We Help Cure Hunger

We welcome anyone in need who walks through the doors, including the homeless, people down on their luck and in need of a little extra help, older adults and families struggling to feed their growing children.

Food Pantry  |  Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 9-11 a.m. and Tuesday & Thursday by appointment
Our food pantry helps to bridge the gap by offering nutritional staples including canned goods, packaged foods and bread to those struggling to find the means to provide adequate food for themselves and their families.

Snack Pack Program
We serve approximately 400 low-income youth from Aberdeen, Brown County and the surrounding counties, partnering with the United Way, Aberdeen Public Schools, the Aberdeen Area Community Foundation, Feeding South Dakota and area churches to provide food to kids who are likely to go hungry over the weekend when school is out.

Feed the Kids Summer Meal Program
Approximately 34 percent of youth in Brown County receive free or reduced lunch during the school year. When school is out for summer break, we partner with United Way, Aberdeen Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department and Feeding South Dakota to visit local parks throughout the summer and provide approximately 120 low-income youth with a nutritious lunch each day.

Meal Share Program
Each day at noon, we provide a balanced meal to approximately 35-40 low-income individuals who might not otherwise eat. Our noon lunch is also an opportunity for those who might often suffer from social isolation to connect with staff and peers in a warm, welcoming environment.

We are grateful to our Meal Share partners: United Way, Wal-Mart, Feeding South Dakota and local grocery stores.
