In June, 800 families living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota received dry food boxes from our project Running Strong for American Indian Youth®! Usually we send frozen food boxes, but in the hot summer months it is difficult to unload the frozen boxes before they melt in the South Dakota sun. To solve this problem we are trying out the dry boxes this summer.
If they are successful, we are hoping to send more food boxes like them in August, with your support! Every box includes nutritious foods to feed one family, like spaghetti and meatballs, cooking oil, rice, and dry beans.
