Our mission is to bring a message of mercy and hope to those in need by providing nutritional basics and encouragement; to be a unifying, servant hearted and community building expression of jesus christ in madison.


The river food pantry had 29,333 family visits in the food pantry during 2014, an average of 2,440 visits per month, and served 26,286 meals. We distributed 135,880 pounds of free clothing during the year.

the river food pantry initiated the river bakery as a job training program to bring hope of self-sufficiency and encouragement to the underemployed, unemployed and incarcerated by providing job training, mentoring, and job placement into baking related positions. In the first full year the river bakery accepted 24 students. Twelve students completed the program and 9 students found employment in baking related positions.

It was very easy to volunteer at the River. I just showed up to one of the pantry sessions and I was plugged right in to weighing food for clients. I was surprised how friendly everyone was--volunteers and clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very down to earth and friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

eliminate hunger in Dane County.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
