“I never dreamed in a million years that I’d be using a food pantry. I was laid off and my 99 weeks of unemployment just ran out. I almost cried the last couple weeks I’ve been here. I am just so thankful for The River.”

The Need is Great

"The economy may be showing signs of life, but food pantries and other nonprofit food-distribution agencies around the region say they are struggling to meet record-breaking demand as the holidays approach." These words are from an article in the Washington Post this week.

In the Madison area life seems to be just as difficult.  Last week The River  served 626 families or 1770 individuals in the pantry as well as 534 meals.  The River's service numbers are up by 20% over last year.  Please read our latest newsletter for a better view of the economic impact on Madison's north side.

"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
