The third annual Good Neighbor Food Drive will take place this Saturday and Sunday at the Spearfish Walmart store -- and at Walmart stores across South Dakota. It's part of a national event for Walmart stores to collect products that are in high demand for local food pantries.
Last year 26,277 pounds of food were collected across South Dakota from the 12 participating Walmart stores, providing nearly 22,000 meals to individuals in need. This year, 13 stores will be participating in the event. Food drive collection bins will be located in the entry ways of the stores. Stores will also be providing prepackaged and pre-priced bags of assorted food items that customers can pick up as they are checking out at the store.
