Food Waste Fighters | The River Food Pantry
English Spanish

We are thrilled to recognize over 50 local food retailers as Food Waste Fighters for their significant donations of food and supplies in 2021 to The River to nourish Dane County households facing food insecurity. We applaud their commitment to minimizing food waste and supporting our community!

Thanks to the Food Waste Fighters and many other supporters, The River was able to recover a total of 1.6 million pounds of food and supplies—that would have otherwise gone to waste—for our community in 2021.
