RAPID CITY – The Rapid City-based Feeding South Dakota is moving into a new building that will allow it to serve more people.

The Rapid City Journal reports that Feeding South Dakota is moving into a new building that will triple its capacity, allowing the organization to serve more people.

The new 30,000-square-foot warehouse includes a large freezer and cooler, loading docks, office space and parking.

In the last 17 years, the Rapid City food bank has more than doubled its food distribution from 1.34 million pounds to more than 3.2 million pounds.

Matt Gassen is the executive director of Feeding South Dakota. He says the organization is excited about the new home, but also disheartened by the size because it means there is that much of a need.
