HUB & SPOKE
RIVER FUND IS A VITAL DISTRIBUTION CENTER
Since early in the pandemic, during which about a third of New York City’s pantries permanently closed, RIVER FUND has operated a “Hub & Spoke” program serving an average of six to eight smaller community-based organizations, furnishing them with food from its warehouses for local needs not otherwise being addressed. These supported pantries are located in communities identified as lacking in access to emergency food for their residents.

DID YOU KNOW?
The Hub & Spoke Program was created to address the staggering need and limited supply of food.
RIVER FUND distributes over 350,000 pounds of food to partnering food pantries, monthly.
More than 4,000 new households are now served monthly in this program.
One Partner has become a RIVER FUND Mobile Site with three others in development.
