The River responds to COVID-19 in Dane County

The River has established a COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund to meet the nutritional needs of food-insecure households in Dane County for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. Anonymous donors have generously offered to match donations up to $35,000.

In response to school closures and widespread impact by this global health crisis, the demand for The River's services increases.

Our COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund will help to provide:

  • Boxes of groceries, including perishable and non-perishable food, for hundreds of local households to pick up curbside at The River.
  • Pre-bagged lunches for children delivered through MUNCH—The River's mobile lunch program—to 9 low-income neighborhoods 6 days a week.

By supporting this fund, you will help the most vulnerable members of our community receive the resources they need during this challenging time. No donation is too small—95 cents of every dollar donated goes to our programs and services.
