While at the Faith Temple Food Giveaway this past week, I met a divorced woman with three children waiting in line for the giveaway to begin.

She told me something I will never forget: In Sharon’s words, “without the weekly food giveaways, I fear my family would go hungry. Such a joy it is to come here and leave with so much food that can last us an entire week. Thank God for Faith Temple and their food giveaways.”

So far, the Faith Temple and the many volunteers have fed thousands of area residents. They have been doing so for nearly eight years---with no end in sight.

If you are in need of food, we invite you to the Faith Temple Food Giveaway on Friday beginning at 4 p.m. in the Nordstrom Johnson building at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.

If you want to volunteer, Pastor Jeff Hayes welcomes you to the event! “You will benefit so much from helping us,” the Pastor tells me. “You can certainly make a profound difference by sharing what we have to others in our community who are in need of food.”
