Coronavirus forces big Lakota food drive to adjust for safety: How it went

Journal-News |

The recently completed food drive for Reach Out Lakota community charity was altered this year for safety reasons with changes including not allowing the public to enter school buildings to make donations.

“Lakota’s annual food drive is consistently a major source of relief for our partners at Reach Out Lakota,” said Lakota Superintendent Matt Miller.

The district-wide food drive and other collections held at Lakota schools account for 75 percent of the annual food donations stocking the shelves at Reach Out Lakota. In 2019, the organization gave out over 127,000 meals to more than 8,000 people.
