A chance encounter while serving food to hungry South Dakotans led one Sioux Falls woman to think more deeply about the impact of poverty on people's lives. Katrina Lehr-McKinney gathered with other women to launch a drive to collect menstrual products for distribution to women who couldn't afford their own. The drive is called "The Pad Party," and it's in its eleventh year. Guests: Katrina Lehr-McKinney and Brienne Maner.
