The Food Pantry is MOM's flagship operation. Operating year round, six days per week, we serve over 4,000 people each month, including nearly 2,000 children.
Not only one of the largest in Dane County, the Food Pantry is one of the most progressive pantries because of its unique model. Guests to the Pantry can visit as often as they need, effectively eliminating hunger for anyone in our service area.
MOM proudly partners with Second Harvest Food Bank and Community Action Coalition, and receives support from businesses and foundations throughout the community as well as over 200 volunteers.
In 2015, MOM distributed over 1.3 million pounds of food, equaling over 100,000 pounds of food per month.
Besides MOM's Food Pantry, several other Food Programs (including several gardens) and community collaborations also help end hunger.
Hunger and the threat of homelessness affect all aspects of a child's life. Your financial gift is about so much more than meeting day-to-day needs. It's about giving families - individuals, parents, and kids - the support they need to make it through today and live with hope for the future. Financial gifts of money help support MOM's programs, such as the Food Pantry, Clothing Center, Homelessness Prevention (Housing) programs, and seasonal programs in the Middleton, West Madison and Cross Plains areas of Wisconsin.

Kary Beck, volunteer and member of team Mead & Hunt, tells us how their award-winner participation in Canstruction® Madison impacted her and her coworkers in her blog post, "Making a difference in our community, one can at a time." This year's theme was "sCANning the Galaxy". Mead & Hunt built the Starship Enterprise (from Star Trek) out of cans of food.
