Hunger Is All Around Us

Every day, more than 106,000 people in South Dakota are at risk of going hungry.

One out of 8 individuals is food insecure, meaning they might not know where their next meal will come from. We help people in need get access to nutritious food and find relief from hunger.

 

Hunger Is More Than Numbers

Hunger goes beyond the statistics. While the effects of hunger aren’t always obvious, the truth is, you likely have a neighbor, co-worker, acquaintance or relative who is struggling with hunger or food insecurity. We are here to help.

 

How We Help Cure Hunger

We welcome anyone in need who walks through the doors at our Family Services Center (900 N. Cliff Ave.) or our Worship and Service Center (800 N. Cliff Ave.), including the homeless, people in need of a little extra help during a difficult season, older adults and families struggling to feed their growing children. We provide these services to help cure hunger in Sioux Falls:

Emergency Food Pantry  |  Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-3:30 p.m.
Family Services Center, 900 N. Cliff Ave.
605-332-2331
Our food pantry serves more than 1,100 low-income individuals and families from Lincoln and Minnehaha counties each year. Open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-3:30 p.m., the pantry offers packaged and canned food, as well as fresh fruit, produce and meat. Individuals and families visiting the food pantry are asked to provide a picture ID, social security cards for each person in the household and proof of income.

Sallie's Table Weekend Feeding Program  |  Saturday and Sunday from 5-6 p.m.
Worship and Service Center, 800 N. Cliff Ave.
605-338-6649
On Saturday and Sunday evenings when all other feeding programs in the area are closed, we serve a nutritious meal year-round to homeless and near-homeless people who do not have enough to eat on a regular basis. Between 300 and 400 homeless and low-income individuals and families in Sioux Falls enjoy food and fellowship at Sallie's Table each weekend.

Volunteers are needed to help prepare the meal each Saturday and Sunday from 3-4:45 p.m., as well as to help serve meals from 5-6 p.m. and to help clean up. Call 605-338-6649 for more information. 

Senior Food Commodity Boxes
Worship and Service Center, 800 N. Cliff Ave.
605-338-6649
Older adults are often among the most vulnerable to hunger and food insecurity, which is why we offer a monthly food program specifically for low-income seniors age 60 and older. We serve approximately 440 older adults every month. 

Food boxes are available for pick-up the second Thursday of each month. Homebound seniors can also make arrangements to have their food box delivered. For more information or to apply to the Senior Food Commodity Box program, please call 605-338-6649 ext. 312.
