MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The organization 100 Men of Dane County gave a $97,000 grant to The River Food Pantry to expand their Madison-based program, Munch.

The mobile meal program currently serves children in low-income families on Madison’s east and north sides by providing free nutritious meals.

The River Food Pantry wants to use the grant to expand its services on Madison’s south side.

Rhonda Adams, the executive director of The River Food Pantry, said she is extremely honored and grateful for the grant.

“Their generous support of Munch will help feed thousands of children coping with hunger throughout Madison,” she said.

Munch, which has been in operation for the past six years, has provided 33,000 meals to children facing food insecurity in 2021. This year, they hope to deliver at least 45,000 meals to children in need.
