ORGANIZATION: The River Food Pantry

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 302 people are interested

The River is the largest and busiest food pantry in Dane County, distributing groceries each week to over 700 households.

In the face of COVID-19, we are distributing boxes of groceries for curbside pickup outside of our facility. We need volunteers to help sort donations, pack boxes of groceries, and carry the boxes out to the clients. On Mondays, volunteers will be sorting and preparing for the curbside market. Tuesdays through Fridays, the market will be hosting curbside distribution, so volunteers will either be sorting, preparing boxes and carts of groceries, or loading groceries into clients' vehicles.

Volunteers are needed:

Monday
9:00am - 11:00am
11:00am - 1:00pm

Tuesday, Thursday
9:15 am-11:45 am
11:30 am-1:30 pm
1:15 pm-3:15 pm

Wednesday
11:00 pm-2:00 pm
1:45 pm-4:00 pm
3:45 pm-6:15 pm

Friday
9:45 am-11:45 am
11:30 am-1:30 pm
1:15 pm-3:15 pm

We are looking for healthy volunteers ages 16 and up.
