The River Food Pantry

  • 1 person is interested

Help us prepare meals to send home with the families that shop at our market! Though we had to close our dining area due to COVID, we are grateful to continue to have the opportunity to provide meals to our clients. The meals are prepared onsite by our chefs with the help of many wonderful volunteers. They are safely stored, and then they are sent home with the clients with reheating instructions so that they can be enjoyed as family meals in the home. We need help with meal prep (and occasionally distributions as well) during the following times:

Monday through Friday
9:00am - 11:00am
11:00am - 1:00pm
1:00pm - 3:00pm

If you are interested, you can get started by following this URL to fill out a volunteer application: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=1298796784

If you have any questions, please contact us by email at volunteer@riverfoodpantry.org or by phone at (608) 661-1224.

Thank you!

About The River Food Pantry

Location:

2201 DARWIN RD, MADISON, WI 53704, US

Mission Statement

Food, resources and faith to build a stronger community.

Description

The River Food Pantry is Dane County’s busiest food pantry, offering free groceries, meals, mobile lunches and clothing to anyone who comes for help. Located in a warehouse just off Northport Drive and Packers Avenue, The River is surrounded by low-income neighborhoods and subsidized senior housing-exactly where we’re needed the most. We also provide a mobile lunch program for children and teens in low income neighborhoods surrounding the food pantry. Nutritious packed lunches are distributed in the neighborhoods on weekends and other non-school days.

More than just meals, The River provides a warm and welcoming family atmosphere where everyone is treated with respect, encouraged to find the support they need, and given the opportunity to share what they can with others.
