SC Food Pantry May Close, SITP Mainstage Lineup Announced, 5:04


060519 504

A food pantry that serves more than 5,000 people a month in Sioux City is being evicted because the building it operates from has been sold.

The Midtown Family Community Center houses the food pantry, a free Saturday meal, and a 4-H program. Boys and Girls Home Inc. owns the building and had allowed the community center to use the building rent-free. But the building was sold last month. 

the grant funding the center receives provides only food for the pantry and Saturday meal. She says officials are looking for another neighborhood space to reopen.

Early, heavy and ... in places ... relentless rains have led to a late planting season across much of the central United States, especially for corn.

Iowa State University climate science professor Gene Tackle (TAH-clee) says the conditions that caused this spring’s wet weather will continue as climate change warms oceans.

Shannon Moeller with the Iowa Seed Association says some farmers who use cover crops can get back into their fields faster after it rains because the plants’ living roots help the fields dry out.

Rapper Flo Rida and blues rocker George Thorogood will headline the 29th annual Saturday in the Park on July 6. Flo Rida is best known for his 2008 breakout single "Low," which was No. 1 on the U.S. charts for 10 weeks and broke the record for digital download sales at the time of its release. 

The free music festival at Sioux City's Grandview Park also will feature indie rocker Liz Phair, soul and rock artist Con Brio and the country duo Michigan Rattlers.
