Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls

Each year, the Sioux Falls office participates in a fall fund drive. This year, we chose to support Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to reducing child hunger and malnutrition around the world. According to Kids Against Hunger, over 14,000 children suffer from malnutrition, starvation, and other hunger-related diseases every day. Their solution comes in the form of a revolutionary food package that provides undernourished children with key vitamins, protein, and carbohydrates. This unique food package was developed by top food scientists at Cargill, Pillsbury, General Mills, and ADM. Click here to learn more about Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls.

Interstates Makes an Impact

At the Sioux Falls office, we were able to raise $1,600 for Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls. In addition to fundraising, we also prepared and packed meals. Last week, a group of sixteen Interstates employees visited the Kids Against Hunger facility in Sioux Falls to pack meals. In roughly an hour, we were able to prepare over 500 food packages which is equivalent to roughly 3,240 meals. The meals we packed will be shipped to children in Zambia.

As a team, we are proud to be able to give back through our fall fund drive and support organizations that do good around the world. A big thank you to all who participated in this year’s fall fund drive! How do you and your family give back to your community?
