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.
