Food for Thought Initiative

Food for Thought Initiative (Food4TI) selected The River Food Pantry to serve as the organization’s fiscal sponsor.

Food4TI is a volunteer organization aiming to reduce the impact of food insecurity on school children and their families through:

  • In-school pantries that provide healthy food choices to students and their families in 5 Madison public schools: Sandburg Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary, Mendota Elementary, Cherokee Heights Middle, and East High School.
  • Thea’s Table, a weekend meal program, which provides nutritious shelf-stable food to Madison school children and their families who are homeless or in crisis. Emergency bags are also available when needed.
  • Thoreau Weekend Food Bag Program, which provides at-need Thoreau Elementary students with a bag of two nutritious meals to take home on Fridays.
