STURGIS — The annual Sturgis Kiwanis Food Drive is Saturday, Nov. 2.

Unlike in year’s past, volunteers will not deliver a blue bag to the door of local homeowners. Instead, volunteers are asking you to use your own grocery bag and fill it with donations of non-perishable food items.

People are asked to place their food donations in any plastic bag and set it on their doorstep or by their mailbox on Saturday, Nov. 2 no later than 10 a.m. 

Also, volunteers are needed from 9:45 a.m. to approximately noon on Nov. 2 to assist with driving and picking up food donations.  Individuals or groups who wish to volunteer, may call/text Rich Deaver at (605) 206-0145

Food drive banners and signs have been placed around Sturgis as a reminder of the upcoming food drive. Food donation barrels also have been placed at Lynn’s Dakota Mart, Grocery Mart, and the Sturgis Public Library.  

You may also drop donations at the Kiwanis Food Pantry during their hours of operation from 9-11:45 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Items to consider donating include: Mac and cheese, Hamburger Helper, ramen noodles, Rice-A-Roni, cereal, cake mixes, crackers, pasta, or canned goods such as:  beef stew, tuna, salmon, Spam, soups, chili, tomatoes, fruit, mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, mayo or Miracle Whip.  Organizers ask that no items in glass containers be donated.

If it would be more convenient, cash donations are accepted and can be mailed to Sturgis Kiwanis Food Pantry, P.O. Box 4136, Sturgis, SD  57785 or dropped off at the Food Pantry located at 801 6th Street.
