Sioux Falls Pastor Jeff Hayes says it’s hard to believe the Faith Temple weekly food giveaways are still being held.

“We thought maybe it would go for a month or two or three. But, that would be about it. However, to our great surprise we are still doing it for eight years. Since the first food giveaway, we have given away about eight million pounds of food.”

As long as people are in need of food, Pastor Hayes says the weekly food giveaways will take place.

“We are hoping to go out of business. We are hoping the day will come when everyone can take care of their food and financial needs. That will be a great day! We will celebrate.”

Another Faith Temple food giveaway will get underway Friday at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds beginning at 4:00 PM.

At least 12,000 pounds of produce, bakery items and meat are expected to be given away.

Volunteers are always needed and welcome!
