First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard proudly partner with Kids Against Hunger in Sioux Falls to provide food for those in need. Each year we sponsor and pay for two meal-packing events: most recently, our volunteer employees and their families packed 6,480 meals.
“This is a really fun opportunity to give back, and knowing that it’s not about the pounds of food, but about the number of meal packs, makes it even more meaningful,” says Miles Beacom.
Each pack feeds four to six people with a nourishing meal, formulated by food scientists, that comprises all nine essential amino acids required for complete nutrition. The packs contain rice, soy, a dehydrated vegetable blend, and 21 vitamins and minerals.
The mixture was designed with undernourished children in mind. Kids Against Hunger has helped feed millions around the world–in places like Haiti, Guatemala, and more—as well as people in Sioux Falls. A portion of meal packs is given to local children through Feeding South Dakota’s BackPack Program.
We’re proud of our PREMIER team members and their commitment to serving both their community and those abroad. Thanks to the willingness of these individuals and organizations like Kids Against Hunger, we’re able to make a positive impact on others’ lives.
