FAM: Family At-Home Meals

The River’s curbside meal program, called FAM (Family At-Home Meals), provides to-go meals for everyone in a household to share in the comfort of their homes. Clients can pick up meals up to four times each week. These healthy, balanced meals are freshly made by The River’s professionally trained chefs and volunteers. The menu changes weekly to include meat and vegetarian options, along with a side salad and fresh fruit.


Day Hours
Tuesday 9:30am–3:00pm (lining up begins at 9:15am)
Wednesday 12:00pm–6:00pm (lining up begins at 11:45am)
Thursday 9:30am–3:00pm (lining up begins at 9:15am)

PLEASE NOTE: Due to circumstances that are out of our control, The River can no longer allow lines of vehicles in the parking lot before our curbside distribution begins. The soonest you can begin forming a line is 15 minutes before we open. Do not come to The River before the line-up times listed above! *Thursdays and Fridays are typically less busy.
