Canstruction®Madison is a competition where teams build incredible, highly imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food they have purchased or collected. After the competition, all the food is donated to MOM's Food Pantry. Canstruction®Madison invites the public to view the structures and contribute their own donation of canned food to help end hunger.
Following a year where MOM distributed unprecedented amount of food to people in need, MOM will go for the Gold in the Olympic feat to end hunger in the community.
This year's Celebrity Judge is internationally known Women's Soccer Player and Olympic medalist, Lindsay Tarpley. In 2003, Tarpley was named Soccer America Player of the Year and led the University of North Carolina to the national title.

The free community event following the building of the structures will take place on Thursday, May 1st at KEVA Sports Center in Middleton and will be great fun for the whole family. Besides viewing and voting for favorite structures, there will be food concessions and children's activities. The site is sponsored by KEVA Sports Center.

Kurt Saupe was a wonderful father, husband, scientist, teacher and athlete. He passed away in June after a long battle with leukemia. It was Kurt's wish that something good come from his passing; he asked that his friends and family find a way to remember him by supporting the work of MOM.

Thanks to two local tennis teachers - Lyle Schaefer and his daughter Kalla - and some of their friends and students, area families will have food on their tables and a stable home. In November, the two organized an "opposite handed" tennis tourney and invited people to learn this new skill while raising money for MOM. "We thought people would enjoy approaching tennis from a new perspective and wanted to raise funds for MOM - hence, the Tourney!" Special thanks to The Tennis Shop for their support!
