There is a flurry of activity that happens in downtown Riverhead every Wednesday. Staff and volunteers gather from churches, soup kitchens, and food pantries from around the East End area to meet up with the Island Harvest truck, which arrives early morning to hand out equal portions of food donations for their respective locations. RISE Life Services is there. This is the one day that the RISE Food Pantry will open in Riverhead and the staff, comprised of individuals from our program meets that truck in the Main Street parking lot behind Maximus Gym each week. They help other community members, stock inventory, and they head back to prepare for the visitors they will certainly serve that day.
