Connecting community to compassion
Serving Dane County since 2006, The River Food Pantry provides food, resources and faith to build a stronger community. Services include free groceries, meals and clothing, as well as free mobile lunches for children and teens on non-school days. As the area’s busiest food pantry, The River serves over 1,000 households every week in pursuit of its vision: a fully nourished community.
First United Methodist Church, at 203 Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Madison, will host an emergency day warming center on Mon., Jan. 28–Fri., Feb. 1 from 8:00 am–4:00 pm for families and women experiencing homelessness.
