Rapid City, SD – “Hungry for Truth” was made in South Dakota, and now the initiative is sponsoring Made in South Dakota on Oct. 10 in downtown Rapid City.

The event features music, exhibits, food and local items from South Dakota. Also at the event, farmers will be on hand at the “Hungry for Truth” booth to answer questions South Dakotans have about food grown in the state.

“Made in South Dakota is an event celebrating the unique and great things about our state, including food,” said Paul Casper, South Dakota Soybean Association board member. “This event was a natural fit for us to support and a great way to reach more people in the state. We hope South Dakotans stop by to talk with us about their questions about food and farming.”

The “Hungry for Truth” food truck will be at the event, selling pork slider meals at a discounted price of $6.99. In addition to meeting farmers and enjoying local fare, visitors can sign up to win $25,000 toward new cabinets, counters and premium KitchenAid appliances from Karl’s Appliances or $250 gift cards for a shopping spree at Family Thrift. The initiative is also giving away a KitchenAid mixer at the event that day.

In January, the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council (SDSRPC) launched “Hungry for Truth,” an initiative designed to spur conversations among South Dakotans and the state’s farmers about farming and food. This event is one of many this past year, including the Main Street Square Concert Series, the Sioux Empire Fair and Sioux Falls Restaurant Week. These event sponsorships meet the initiative’s goals to engage with non-farmers where they are.

The “Hungry for Truth” initiative is an outreach program about food and farming funded by the SDSRPC. The goal of “Hungry for Truth” is to elevate the discussion among South Dakotans and South Dakota farmers about how food is raised.
