KELOLand Living has announced that a Sioux Falls feeding program is scheduled to serve weekly hot meals in the Laura B. Anderson Elementary School neighborhood beginning Nov. 3, 2020.
Meals will be donated, prepared and served by groups of volunteers committed to the Kid Link Riverside Initiative that supports LBA students and families.

Here’s your opportunity!
Kid Link Riverside needs groups of volunteers to take turns at providing Nightwatch meals on Tuesdays.
Never done it before? Tuesday meal times are available in November and December to give Nightwatch a try before committing to a service schedule.
The Kid Link Riverside Initiative began this summer by introducing volunteers through special events, Bookmobile visits and food giveaways. In addition, Nightwatch meals were served on Saturday afternoons throughout the summer. More than 100 people were fed at the last summer program.
The ultimate goal for Kid Link Riverside is to create a sustainable group of parents, neighbors and volunteers to support children’s educational achievement.
As the Kid Link parent organization, Sioux Falls Thrive focuses on three critical areas: affordable housing, out-of-school time, and food security. Its mission is to ensure that all children in the metro area have the resources they need to achieve their optimal educational and career potential.
Kid Link was created as a neighborhood-based demonstration of Thrive’s work to bring together existing community resources to reach a common goal. Kid Link Riverside is supported by more than 120 volunteers and 40+ organizations.
