Why did Thrive choose Riverside for Kid Link?

Funded by a generous donor, Kid Link is the demonstration of a neighborhood approach to collaboration among available services. The goal is to provide immediate benefits for school-age children. Over the next three years, Kid Link will realign community resources to better serve children and their families in Riverside and two additional neighborhoods.

Potential neighborhoods were chosen based on the report titled Food Security & Food Systems in Sioux Falls, SD December 2018. The Food Security Action Team compiled data to show the neighborhoods surrounding three Title I schools in terms of food security indicators.

Using that data, the Food Security Action Team chose the Laura B. Anderson Elementary School attendance area based on several observations, including:

  • Limited accessibility to charitable food sources
  • More than 20% of residents eligible for SNAP (food stamp) benefits
  • Population diversity
  • Highest percentage of families without access to transportation
  • 82% free and reduced lunch eligibility

Kid Link Goals

  • Identify needs and wants of LBA families
  • Form an engagement collaborative charged with addressing needs using existing resources
  • Implement changes
  • Measure the change in student performance
