The Pizza Ranch Support Center encourages our staff to complete a department service project each year. This year, the Marketing Team traveled to Sioux Falls, SD to volunteer with Feeding South Dakota since one of our members has volunteered there regularly. (link to https://pizzaranch.com/blog/wednesday-stories-of-impact-feeding-the-hungry) While there, the team of 12 members packed 3000 bags of food that will be distributed to kids in area schools to meet their nutritional needs over the weekend through the BackPack Program (link to https://feedingsouthdakota.org/our-programs/childhood-hunger/backpack-program/). They also spent time packing larger boxes of food for the Mobile Food Pantry. https://feedingsouthdakota.org/our-programs/mobile-food-distributions/
Feeding South Dakota will distribute around 18 million pounds of food this year and relies heavily on individual and group volunteers. To learn more about volunteering in South Dakota, visit their website (https://feedingsouthdakota.galaxydigital.com/).
Feeding South Dakota is part of the Feeding America (link to https://www.feedingamerica.org/) organization. For assistance with food, to volunteer, or to donate, visit their website to find your local food bank. (https://www.feedingamerica.org/find-your-local-foodbank)
