Monthly e-newsletter from the Great Plains Food Bank
Happy holidays from the Great Plains Food Bank
2020 was a year like we have never seen before as we witnessed a 45 percent increase in need for food assistance as a result of COVID-19. But with your support, we were able to provide an additional 3 million meals since March of this year.

We can only say thank you for your support. Please watch a special holiday video (at right) from the Great Plains Food Bank staff.

Three weeks at a time...
Joddie Samelson appreciates the assistance of her son Matt when she visits the Kidder County Food Pantry in Steele each month. Following a stroke, Joddie no longer has use of her right arm so the extra help is needed. Living on a fixed income, the food she receives through this Great Plains Food Bank partner agency can last her three weeks. She doesn't know what she would do if it wasn't an option.
