Clients can pick up free curbside groceries from The River once a week. The River does not allow clients inside of the facility. Instead, volunteers and staff will load groceries into people’s vehicles.
Our groceries include non-perishables, perishables (e.g., fruit, vegetables, dairy, meat, frozen items), and other essential supplies (e.g., masks, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, paper products, diapers, formula). We also provide special dietary items, such as gluten-free boxes, upon request. Each household takes home an average of 100 pounds of groceries per visit.
When you arrive at The River for curbside groceries, please let a volunteer or staff member know if you need other specific items, such as gluten-free food, baby formula, diapers, or menstrual products. We will do our best to fulfill your requests.
If you are not feeling well and need food, we encourage you to stay home. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about setting up a proxy shopper.
