HOPE (Help Other People Eat) Holiday Food Drive

For some families in Dane County, a holiday meal is a luxury they just can’t afford. Help Other People Eat—right here in our community—with a generous donation of your funds, your food, and your time at The River Food Pantry.


Why Support the HOPE Holiday Food Drive?

  • You will make the holiday season brighter for our neighbors struggling to make ends meet, including children, seniors, veterans and low-income families.
  • Your support, along with others, will help serve 7,000 holiday to-go meals and provide 3,700 pickups and deliveries of holiday groceries.
  • 97.5 cents of every dollar you donate will go directly to those we serve:
    • $50 = Holiday grocery essentials
    • $50 = Holiday to-go meals
    • $100 = A full week with holiday essentials for 1 Dane County family
