Local volunteers that donate food are recognized with a heroes breakfast
Sioux City, IOWA (KTIV) - Thousands of Iowans go hungry every day and with the help of local donors the Center for Siouxland can give meals to those in need in Siouxland and on Thursday those donors were honored with a heroes recognition breakfast.
With the help of these volunteers, the Center for Siouxland was able to assist 1,500 families last year.
The president and C-E-O for the center says families are still struggling just handle basic needs.
"There are more hungry people in our community than most people know and with the jobs diminishing and the salary levels growing less and less, food becomes an essential basic need that a lot of our families don't have access to and can't financially afford. So our food pantry is able to help those that qualify," said, Jan Klimiades, President and CEO of Center for Siouxland.
The Center for Siouxland is always looking for cash or food donations and if you want to donate, you can go to 715 Douglas Street.
Center for Siouxland also offers a whole host of other services that include consumer credit counseling, utility assistance and much more.
