While the general public is encouraged to self quarantine and self distance, our healthcare workers, grocery store staff, law enforcement, firefighters, truck drivers and more are serving our communities on the frontline.

We are encouraging individuals and families to band together with the Chamber as we support those on the frontlines of COVID-19. When you become a Loyal2Local member, we will use 100% of those dollars to purchase giftcards and supplies from Chamber member businesses to feed and/or assist the frontline in their endeavors.

Feeding South Dakota -   Mobile Food Pantry Distribution
Mobile Food Pantries travel across South Dakota distributing free food to individuals and families in need. These distributions supplement the work of agency partner pantries, shelters and meal sites operating in fixed locations. The Mobile Food Pantry Program began in January of 2013 and is now serving 45 of the most underserved communities where individuals and families lack access to adequate and nutritious foods.
Each family receives approximately 30-70 pounds of fresh and frozen produce, dairy, meat, breads and other non-perishable food items. The type of food distributed varies depending on what is available at the current time. 
Eligibility: Must bring a photo ID.
Dates and times are subject to change.
