Pierre, SD, USA / Farmers Union Enterprises teamed up with South Dakota Farmers Union to donate 35,000 pounds of pork ribs to Feeding South Dakota.
“COVID-19 continues to impact jobs and many South Dakota families continue to see their grocery budget shrink. We see this as a way to help,” explains Doug Sombke, President of Farmers Union Enterprises.
Sombke is also President of one of the state’s largest farm and ranch organizations, South Dakota Farmers Union.
The donation comes at a time when demand for food has doubled, due to job losses during the COVID-19 pandemic, explains Jennifer Stensaas, Communications Coordinator for Feeding South Dakota. “As we approach nearly a year of service since the pandemic began, we continue to feed many individuals and families who have never needed food assistance before,” she says.
“We are grateful to organizations like South Dakota Farmers Union for joining forces with us to help meet this increase in demand.”
