It’s a feeling of satisfaction. A sense of fulfillment. It’s about providing nutrition while nourishing a connected community.

The River is looking for volunteers for a mobile lunch program, Madison Unites To Nourish Children at Home (MUNCH). This program provides mobile lunch services directly to children and teens within their local neighborhoods, where it is needed most. MUNCH bridges the gap that exists when school lunch is not available on weekends and over school breaks. You can also make a monetary donation to help support this vital program.

Occasionally 8:30 – 11:00 AM during non-school days
Lunch production
Saturday 8:30 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. Lunch production
