New, 31,000-SF facility

The River Food Pantry

Madison, WI

After years of programming, planning, re-programming, designing, and coordination of variables both foreseen and unforeseen, announced that over $11 million has been raised to build a new facility for The River Food Pantry, located on Madison’s North side.  The new facility will be within eyesight of their existing warehouse, in part of a redevelopment of the 9-acre farm field northeast of the intersection of Packers Ave and Darwin Rd. At over 31,000 square feet, the new facility will triple the size of the River’s currently available space.

Ramaker provided programming, planning and design efforts which led to a hybrid design-build partnership with Advanced Building Corporation at a much-needed time where material costs and availability were on a weekly roller coaster ride. The final building design is the culmination of years of discussions and planning and will ensure that The River is able to continue its mission to nourish Dane County for many years to come.
