PB&J challenge spreads to Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - The actions taken by the Box Elder Police Department are now impacting Rapid City and Sioux Falls.

After kids threw a peanut butter & jelly sandwich at a Box Elder Police Car, instead of disciplining the student, they decided to start a PB&J challenge.

Since Monday is the last day for the Box Elder PD's fundraiser, Feeding South Dakota has challenged the Rapid City and Sioux Falls Police Department's to also take part.

Both have accepted the challenge, so Feeding South Dakota will be placing bins where you can drop off supplies for a PB&J’s at both locations.

They hope this brings more awareness of the food needs in our community

Feeding South Dakota food Security Manager, Mary Corbine, says “it is pretty cool that first off, that Box Elder taking the twist that they did on this and then Feeding South Dakota challenging Rapid city PD and Sioux Falls PD to also collect peanut butter & jelly. You know, the goal is awareness of food security in our communities and across our state and that's really a great opportunity to do that, to bring awareness of the food security, but then also to collect items that are needed too."

If you would like to bring other food items outside of PB&J supplies, feel free to put those in the bins as well.

The bins to drop off food at Rapid City and Sioux Falls will be set up until October 29th.
