On Tuesday, the United Way approved additional funds for the BackPack Program, meaning every child on their waiting list will be served.
The Sioux Empire United Way approved more than $17,000 on top of the $225,000 already spent.
The program provides food for children age 3 to 18, giving them enough food for the weekend.
There were 197 children on the waiting list for the BackPack Program.
