Yes, please leave a message for Kathy at (605) 925-7952 for details.

Will you be hosting another Schmeckfest Drive-Thru?
We hope to have another Schmeckfest Drive-Thru. We are being cautious with the current outbreak of COVID-19 cases in Sioux Falls, as well as mindful of the planting season in our rural community. We will update our Facebook page and website as information is available.

Can I get a tax receipt when I donate my 2020 meal/musical tickets?

Anyone who purchased tickets and does not request a refund by May 31, 2020 will receive a tax receipt for the total amount of their donation to the address on file. If you have more questions regarding this, please contact Meranda Van Ningen, Freeman Academy Development Director at 605.925.4237 x235

How do I get a refund for my 2020 meal/musical tickets?
Send a self-addressed, stamped envelope along with your purchase information by May 31, 2020. It is helpful to include the name, address, number of tickets and purchase total with your request. You do not need to send the tickets with your request; however it is appreciated as it makes finding your order easier. Refunds will be issued for the price of the tickets only.

Pioneer Seating will go on sale July 1.  Orders received by July 15 will be processed by random drawing.  Pioneer seating can be order through October 31 and will be processed as they are received. A

What does canceling Schmeckfest 2020 mean for Freeman Academy?
Schmeckfest is the largest, annual fundraiser for Freeman Academy. This affects our operating costs significantly. It will not jeopardize the school from opening in the fall. However it does impact our general operating budget and increase our need to find financial support elsewhere. 

If you are interested in providing a donation to offset the loss from Schmeckfest 2020, please send it to:
