Volunteers loaded cars with boxes of fresh food and milk at a Farmer’s to Families Tables giveaway in the casino parking lot last week. Those helping included Flandreau officer Gabriel Frias, Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribal acting chief Brian Arnold, paramedic Nikki Roggenbuch and Chief Zach Weber. The food, which is available to anyone who needs it, is part of a United States Department of Agriculture program.Major Redwing, coordinator of the program that is sponsored by the tribe, said the giveaways were held in March, April and May. He has not heard whether there will be additional free food offered. “So far, this is the last one,” he said.The giveaway had no requirements. “It benefits the whole community,” Redwing said.
