Other Food Programs
Mobile Food Pantry
In order to make sure we are reaching all people in need in our community, MOM operates a Mobile Food Pantry, serving two low-income apartment complexes.
Guests at these complexes have a hard time reaching our Food Pantry due to transportation and mobility issues, and greatly look forward to their visit from the MOM truck!
Food Pantry Garden
MOM operates three Food Pantry Gardens, one of which is a teaching garden, which gives clients their own small plot, where they are being taught how to grow food, side by side with volunteer mentors.
The other two gardens are used to provide fresh produce for the Food Pantry. The gardens are managed by volunteers and supported by several businesses throughout the community as well as the Community Action Coalition, Fiskars and Willy Street Co-op.
The garden is lead by volunteer Dan Johnson who won a United Way Community Volunteer Award for his work in 2012.
School Snack Bag Program
The School Snack Bag Program provides food and snacks to hungry students through a partnership with the school Social Workers at several Middleton Cross Plains Area School District schools.
As we picked the cherries, we noticed a robin's nest with 3 eggs in the cherry tree! We shared with our feathered friend family, being sure not to disturb the robin eggs as we picked and leaving a few cherries behind. Respect for nature; respect for one another.
