On Wednesday, U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development State Director for Minnesota Brad Finstad announced the grant, which is expected to benefit over 500 residents.

The Lower Sioux Community’s Intergenerational Cultural Center has a commercial and training kitchen, program rooms for elders and youth, a multi-purpose gathering space, two classrooms a digital production and computer lab, and art studios. This project will help the community purchase new equipment for the commercial kitchen to replace outdated equipment used to prepare meals for low-income elders and youth.
