Donate Food - COVID-19

Help end hunger in our community.  

MOM has one of the largest  food pantries in Dane County,  allowing people to visit as often as they need, truly ending hunger for all those we serve.

Our Food Pantry will continue to operate as a Food Box Distribution through the summer. We are now able to supplement the Second Harvest Food Bank Care Boxes with additional items.

Food Donations

Beginning June 1, we will be accepting food and personal care donations, focusing ONLY on what is on our Top Ten List.

Please keep all items in their original packaging. We ask that you donate either out of the abundance you have recently purchased or by simply buying items at a time when you pick up your groceries.

If you are planning a food collection, please note that we prefer people donate just items on the top ten list at this time. If you have large quantities of a specific item not on the list, please contact Shannon Ash, Program Director ( to discuss the potential donation.

Please note that CLOTHING DONATIONS are not being accepted at this time.  All clothing donations that are left will be discarded for safety reasons.

 Preferred Donation Times

Because our staff is not on site full-time and because our Food Pantry is not open standard weekly hours, donations should be brought to the Food Pantry Donation Door during the following times:

Mondays from 8-10am
Wednesdays from 2-4pm

Please follow the directions posted on the door when you arrive.  Donations that are left outside our building outside of these donation hours will be discarded due to safety concerns.


To help us facilitate larger collections, please fill out the following form and someone from the MOM team will get back to you within a few days with additional information.  Thank you!



  • When you bring in your donation, you will be given a tax receipt.  

    A donation of food should be valued at its fair market value. This is usually the price paid at the grocery store or if the food is from a garden how much it would cost if purchased at a grocery store/farmers market. See IRS guidelines for further explanation.

  • Looking for a way to help end hunger in our community?    There is power in numbers!

    Start or Join a Food Buyer’s Club, a unique and highly-effective way to address hunger in our community.  The concept is easily adapted for your group (such as book clubs, scout troops, church groups, & businesses) regardless of formality, size or dollar commitment.
