The River’s Birthday Bash

Get ready for a birthday bash! The River Food Pantry is celebrating 15 years of feeding Dane County on Saturday, May 15 from 4–6 pm with music, food, drinks, and goodie bags served curbside.

All the proceeds from this drive-thru fundraising event will go toward providing healthy food for the growing number of food-insecure families who utilize The River’s services due to the ongoing pandemic.

For $50 a person, you will take home a beautiful meal and enjoy music and a wine pull from the safety of your car, all while supporting Dane County families facing food insecurity. Come experience The River’s curbside distribution for yourself and help us celebrate 15 years of caring, compassion, and community.

Online pre-registration for The River’s Birthday Bash is available April 5–May 13.

Meal Options

Each ticket includes your choice of Pork Shoulder Tacos, Chicken Shawarma with Banzo Hummus, or Vietnamese Chopped Salad. When you purchase your tickets online, you will be asked to make your meal selection. All three meals will be freshly prepared by The River’s professionally trained staff and volunteers. Attendees will also receive Homemade Lemon Ginger Soda from Madison College Culinary Students and a choice of dessert, including a slice of Turtle Cheesecake from Just Bakery or a Big Ol’ Brownie from Texas Roadhouse.
