We are improving food access and alleviating hunger among Madison Public School students and their families.

Food for Thought Initiative (Food4TI) is a volunteer organization aiming to reduce the impact of food insecurity on school children and their families through:

  • In-school pantries that provide healthy food choices to students and their families in 5 Madison public schools: Sandburg Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary, Mendota Elementary, Cherokee Heights Middle, and East High School.
  • Thea’s Table, a weekend meal program, which provides nutritious shelf-stable food to Madison school children and their families who are homeless or in crisis. Emergency bags are also available when needed.
  • Thoreau Weekend Food Bag Program, which provides at-need Thoreau Elementary students with a bag of two nutritious meals to take home on Fridays.

Food4TI selected The River Food Pantry to serve as the organization's fiscal sponsor. Because The River is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your donations are 100 percent tax deductible.

When donating online, you might see a charge in your payment history as "Network For Good." This is the payment processing and donor management service we use to track and process payments. When selecting to "pay a transaction fee," you are allowing us to receive the full amount of your donation, then covering the cost of the fee that Network For Good charges. When declining this, you are still giving us a donation, but the fee comes out of the amount you pledge to us. Example - Accepted Fee: Gifting $20 to The River, you pay $20.75. Declined fee: We receive 19.25. This applies to every payment, including reoccurring payments.
