The River connects community to compassion.
Serving Dane County since 2006, The River Food Pantry counts on neighbors to help neighbors in need. The River is the area’s busiest pantry serving groceries, community meals, mobile lunches, clothing and household goods to those who are struggling to make ends meet. The River’s mission is to bring a message of mercy and hope to those in need by providing nutritional basics and encouragement.
The River Food Pantry was recently featured in an episode of the Emmy award winning Wisconsin Foodie!
For the safety of the people we serve, our staff and volunteers, The River Food Pantry will close if the Madison Public Schools close due to inclement winter weather.
Our 9th Annual Harvest Dinner is approaching!
