‘It’s really affecting everyone’: South Dakotans turning to food pantries

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Feeding South Dakota and the Good Samaritan Society are collaborating to end food insecurity which has been on the rise here in South Dakota.

“We at Prairie Creek wanted to figure out a way we could serve and give back to the community that has supported us all these years and Feeding South Dakota not only supports us here in Sioux Falls but also distributes in many locations where Good Samaritan serves,” said Alecia O’Neill, Administrator at Good Samaritan Society Prairie Creek.

“Not everyone has all my blessings and there are so many people that need things, and it is very important to share,” said Joyce Tlustos, volunteer and resident of Good Samaritan Prairie Creek.

The Good Samaritan Society is celebrating one hundred years of service. This collaboration with Feeding South Dakota is just one of their many events this month.
