The Banquet adding new location

Posted: Updated:

The banquet will open the new location on the Sioux Empire Fair Grounds in February 2016.

Executive Director Tamera Jerke-Liesinger, says a lot of time and research went into this decision.

By opening this new location she says 1,000 more meals will be served every month.

The banquet runs solely on private donations and volunteers to operate.

Jerke-Liesinger says they will need more volunteers for the new location to run smoothly, but she isn't worried about getting them.

She said, "Because of that strong support from our community we can and will make this expansion. Because of your support and the help of others from the community, more needs will be met and we can take greater steps to eliminate hunger in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area."

Jerke-Liesinger added over 142,000 meals have been served so far this year.

And they're well on the way to serve over 160,000 for the year 2013.
