Feed the Need

Join The River for our fourth annual tasting event, Feed the Need, on Sunday, April 7 from 3–6 p.m. at CUNA Mutual Group!

Tickets include all food and drink samples!
Early Bird: $40 each (February 1–28)
Standard: $50 each (March 1–April 5)
Tickets will not be available at the door. All proceeds benefit The River.

In addition to raising funds and awareness for The River, Feed the Need offers a unique local culinary experience featuring dozens of Madison Originals restaurants, as well as local breweries and wineries. Attendees will enjoy samples of delicious food, spirits, and live music by Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, a basket raffle, a wine pull and a specialty item pull.

The event will once again be emceed by Kyle Cherek, host of the Emmy Award-winning television show Wisconsin Foodie on PBS.

In 2018, the event raised $40,000, which provided over two month’s worth of food at The River! See photos from last year’s event here.
