Sanford Health donates $1 million towards Feeding South Dakota
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Sanford Health is infusing a lot of money in the fight against food insecurity in the Midwest.
It’s donating $3 million to food banks across its networks with $1 million going towards Feeding South Dakota.
With food banks across the nation feeling the effects of the pandemic, Sanford Health says it wanted to help ease the burden and promote good health.
Volunteers with the Good Samaritan Society’s Saint Martin’s Village, which is part of Sanford, donated their time at Feeding South Dakota’s Rapid City location by loading packs of food items for school kids.
“It really warms our heart that we are going to give back to the community and help those that may need a little help during this time, especially during the pandemic,” said St. Martin’s Village Executive Director, Kyle Richards.
The donation comes on the 70th anniversary of United Nations World Food Day, which promotes awareness of those suffering from hunger, and the need to ensure healthy diets for all.
