For one Sioux Falls restaurant food is not only important to their customers but also to the rest of the community. Especially kids.

According to KDLT News the Sioux Falls School District received a big donation during their school board meeting Monday night.

It's really sad to think that many children here in Sioux Falls got to school each morning having not eaten breakfast or can afford their school lunch.

Through their Hungry Hearts Campaign, The Barrel House donated $92,000 to the district.

KDLT reports that the majority of the money, $82,000 worth, will go toward students who have negative lunch accounts. The remaining $10,000 will be used for winter weather gear for needy children, according to the Sioux Falls School District Facebook page.

The Barrel House started the Hungry Hearts campaign back in October and has hosted auction and raffle events since.
