Feeding


MISSION

 

Vitamin Outreach Program

    

     The River Fund's mission to feed and empower those we serve to move beyond the line of poverty encompasses food and non-food needs of people living near or below the poverty level.     People need the basic necessities of food, shelter and a sense of self-dignity.  Our programs are designed to help meet those needs in a safe and supportive environment. 

       To this end, we support and affirm all people regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation.
