Kids Against Hunger has had an active presence in Sioux Falls for over 10 years. In that time, 9 million meals have been provided to those in need, helping to feed people around the world and around the corner.
Like many organizations, we have needed to pause and reflect on how we can safely continue our mission to serve our community during these times. We are using this time for strategic planning of our future, working towards ways to safely phase back to inviting volunteers in for the joy of coming together to pack meals for those most hungry. In this transition, we are also exploring options for a new packing center. Since our inception, Avera Health has graciously housed our ministry in their building at 33rd and Minnesota. With their increase in demand, this space is needed as Avera continues to grow to meet community needs. We are grateful for their partnership and support as we plan for our future.
“Avera has been a proud supporter of Kids Against Hunger for many years,” said Tom Bosch, Vice President of Hospitality at Avera McKennan. “We look forward to seeing Kids Against Hunger take its next step in a new home while continuing to move its important work forward.”
