Mobile Operations and Logistics

Having pioneered the Mobile Pantry system in 1993, The River Fund became the
very first organization ever to receive specific recognition of the mobile pantry
model under the Federal Hunger Prevention and Nutritional Assistance Program
(HPNAP). We are very proud of this accomplishment—one that is benefitting needy
communities nationwide. Not only is this model now being emulated across the
country, much closer to home, several organizations in New York were able to
quickly launch their own mobile operations—and get them funded—after Sandy’s
impact, and our rapid response to it, exposed the value of having such flexible
capabilities.

The River Fund has been able to sustain this important pioneering endeavor for
19 years thanks, in part, to the gifts we can count on from our monthly donors.
Thank you.

Tribute Information

RIVER FUND operates as navigators to help families through the maze of more than 140 different anti-poverty programs to find the small handful that specifically matches their unique circumstance. Every family’s situation is different. Every person in the family faces the impact of poverty in a different way. Battling poverty on the frontline involves tackling both individual needs AND supporting the family as a whole.

Since 1991, RIVER FUND has been perfecting the skill of guiding individuals and families from despair and frustration to hope. Our methods work, and we have established one of the most effective models for poverty combat in New York City—from hunger support, to benefits access, and through a unique “cradle to college initiative” to finally break the multi-generational cycle of poverty that has made material hardship the most heartbreaking part of our great City’s reality for more than 50 years.
