Feeding South Dakota Backpack Program needs your help!

feedingsdIt is that time of the year again when the children head back to school. Feeding SD is once again looking for volunteers to help out with their Backpack program for the 2016-2017 school year.

The BackPack program provides at-risk children with nutritious, easy-to-prepare foods during weekends and holidays when school is not in session. Food is distributed through the schools because of their relationship with students, easy access and safe environments. The Rapid City BackPack Program currently provides more than 1,800 weekend packages of food to at-risk, chronically hungry school children.

There are two days a week that volunteers are needed for the Backpack program:

Monday afternoons from 12:30 – 2:30pm
Volunteers are needed to help prep and set up the canned food line as well as pack a couple hundred bags.

Tuesday afternoons 12:30- 2:30pm
Groups of 20/25+ are needed to come and pack bags.

Volunteers must be 12 years of age and older.

If you would like to volunteer or have a group that would be interested please contact Larry at (605) 348-2689 ext. 206 or by email
