Free Firkin Friday 4 Charity
November 16, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pm← All Events
Once a month we decide to have some fun with our Firkins…and we off up a FREE Firkin Friday…..for Charity!
What this means, is that we tap a special, super limited firkin beer. Then, for a donation (however big or small) made to our chosen charity, we’ll buy your FIRST firkin pint. Our firkin beer today is a spiced brown ale…AND this month we’re donating all proceeds to our friends from the River Food Pantry of Dane County.
The River Food Pantry is Dane County’s busiest food pantry, offering free groceries, meals, mobile lunches and clothing to anyone who comes for help. The River is surrounded by low-income neighborhoods and subsidized senior housing—exactly where we’re needed the most. We also provide a mobile lunch program for children and teens in low income neighborhoods surrounding the food pantry. Nutritious packed lunches are distributed in the neighborhoods on weekends and other non-school days.
The River feeds more than 700 Dane County families per week, sharing 48 thousand pounds of food every seven days, or about 2 million pounds of food each year. Over $3.6 million in goods and services are distributed annually. We also serve 550+ hot meals each week and currently distribute 400 mobile packed lunches on each non-school day.
