Redistribution Community Partnerships

The River Food Pantry has become the first redistribution organization (RDO) of Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. As an RDO, The River can redirect food sourced from Second Harvest to other local organizations throughout Dane County.

Through this RDO agreement, The River is allowed to formalize redistribution community partnerships with local organizations in need of support. Our partners receive regular donations of excess food and resources from The River to reach those who do not access our pantry’s services for various reasons. This initiative helps to increase access to healthy food and to minimize food waste in Dane County.

Our current redistribution community partners include:


Access Housing
Dryden Terrace (senior and assisted living)
Hope’s Home Ministries La Follete High School St. Paul Lutheran Church Community Store


For information about becoming a redistribution community partner, please contact Bethany Michiels, The River’s Community Coordinator, at
