October was a busy and exciting month for Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls. We held only five packing sessions but still packed over 34,000 meals. The University of Sioux Falls came in and packed 15,000 in less than two hours! It was exciting to see how hard they worked and what beautiful artwork was done on the boxes we will send to Haiti later this month. Even better news is that they will return again this month to do it all over again.
Many people ask how they can get involved. I guess the best way to get involved is to stop by sometime and see what we are doing. Maybe you'd like to become a "Leader of the Pack". It means joining with 2 or 3 other leaders and greeting, instructing, supervising, preparing a sample of our food, cleaning up and then saying good bye to new friends. It involves about 2 to 3 hours of your time.
We will be supplying meals to Faith Temple in Sioux Falls. They have a Friday Night Food Give Away. People who have packed the meals at our packing center will pass out the meals to nearly 400 families that show up. We have many families here in Sioux Falls that will benefit from our Kids Against Hunger meals. We will continure to honor requests for our food wherever they come from.
Look at our "Get Involved" page to see the schedule for November. Then drop by and see what's happening. You might even be put to work.
