To fulfill its mission to end hunger in South Dakota, Feeding South Dakota began a monthly food distribution at the Presbyterian Church in Onida in the fall of 2017.

Once a month, Feeding South Dakota delivers 32 food boxes to Onida to meet its goal of giving everyone access to nutritious food. To span the gap between distributions, a local food pantry has been established at the Presbyterian Church.

The Onida Youth for Christ kicked off their fellowship year Sunday by holding a ‘stock the pantry’ scavenger hunt. Six teams of four scoured the community in search of non-perishable food, toiletries, and household supplies, and through their efforts, filled the pantry with nearly 1000 items.
