Feed the Need 2019 | The River Food Pantry
English Spanish

This year’s Feed the Need set a record for the most funds raised! Over 400 of The River’s supporters came together at CUNA Mutual Group on Sunday, April 7 to enjoy flavors from local restaurants, breweries and wineries, as well as live music, raffles, a wine pull and a specialty item pull. 

The event raised $45,000, which will provide over two months’ worth of food at The River Food Pantry!

We’d like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this event such a success, including:

  • Madison Originals restaurants, breweries and wineries for serving such a wide selection of delicious food and drink samples.
  • Ale Asylum and Rockhound Brewing Co. for providing beer, and Madison College Culinary Arts for providing homemade ginger lemon soda.
  • CUNA Mutual Group for hosting our guests in your space.
  • Kavanaugh Restaurant Supply for providing cups, plates, napkins, utensils, and more.
  • Host of Wisconsin Foodie, Kyle Cherek, for once again being our emcee.
  • Gin, Chocolate and Bottle Rockets for performing live for our guests.
  • Scot Kemp Creative and Inkworks for designing and printing our beautiful marketing materials.
  • Our photographer and The River’s Warehouse Supervisor, Jon Clark, for capturing so many memories.
  • All the volunteers who helped before, during, and after the event!
