Ways to Support

Your gift to The River, stays right here in your community. The River is Dane County’s busiest food pantry and a local, grassroots nonprofit.

There are many ways you can support The River Food Pantry.

FOOD: Each week, The River serves over 1,000 Dane County households with free groceries, personal care items, and meals. The River needs your help to keep the shelves stocked with a variety of items.

FUNDS: Over 97.5 cents of every dollar you give to The River goes directly to the people we serve. We spend your donation on food and services for customers and on costs to keep the pantry running, such as rent, utilities, and vehicles. We take pride in keeping our costs low and acting as good stewards of your donations on behalf of our thousands of customers.

COMMUNITY PARTNER: Major investments from foundations and corporate sponsors have enabled The River Food Pantry to continue to support Dane County residents struggling to put food on their table.
