The Food Pantry is MOM's flagship operation. Operating year round, six days per week (during the pandemic, our hours of operation for food distribution can be found on the COVID-19 page), 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.
On average, MOM distributes over 1.4 million pounds of food per year, 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, Family Stabilization and seasonal programs in the Middleton, West Madison and Cross Plains areas of Wisconsin.
We are excited to share that we have been awarded a $75,000 grant by the Otto Bremer Trust. This grant will help MOM support low-income individuals and households in our community with basic needs and programming, as they work toward stability. Thank you Otto Bremer Trust!
Thanks to the support of the community, the Food Pantry has grown and adapted to meet the needs of people in our community and reflect current best practices. We have gone from distributing 34,000 pounds in 1990 to 1.3 million pounds in 2019.
Two years ago when Robin moved to Middleton, she knew exactly what she was looking for in a volunteer experience. “My goal was to surround myself with goodness—good people who were making a positive difference in the community,” Robin said. She soon began volunteering at MOM.
