"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you. The River was a source of comfort for me a few years back when I lost a job. Before that, like many people seem to, I thought a food pantry was only for "bums". I was ashamed to go. But once there, I saw the people there were just like me - people who had simply fallen on bad luck, were having trouble making ends meet. It was a very respectful place, free from judgment. Thank you."

Halloween Bash Scared up Funds for The River!

On Thursday, October 26, The River Food Pantry was honored to host a Halloween Bash, presented by Madison MagnetMadison Rotary After Hours! The event was a huge success, bringing in roughly 60 people to the pantry. And better yet, many came in costumes! Hue took The River's stage rocking out to cover songs and Halloween themed music. Attendees danced, enjoyed food and beer provided by Ale Asylum. A lucky winner went home with a $50 Madison Originals gift certificate as well! It was a great event raising over $1,600 for The River Food Pantry!

Thanks to the organizations who put this fun, festive event together. Also, a special thanks to all the attendees who spent their night dancing and discussing ways they can help Dane County neighbors. We hope to see you back at The River soon!

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
- Matthew 25:35-36
