Assist clients as they shop the food market and help clients in the clothing area. Serve a community meal or bus tables.
The River is open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30am-1:30pm and 4:30pm-7:00pm, as well as on Fridays from 4:30pm-7:30pm. We are the busiest food pantry in Dane County, serving over 1,000 families each week with our combined programming. We need lots of help during pantry sessions to greet clients, assist with the distribution of meat, dairy, produce, and bread, serve meals in the kitchen, and load groceries into clients' vehicles. The River is unique in that clients shop for themselves, choosing the items they need.
