Dane County food pantries, including MOM, received wide local media coverage over the last few weeks following a joint press release that outlined the increased demand on our services. Executive Director Ellen Carlson noted that the number of monthly visits to MOM's food pantry and the amount of food distributed has increased by 116% since this time last year. “We’ve been able to meet this rising demand to this point because of the support and generosity of people in our community,” Carlson says. “With the increase in the number of people accessing our services, we need to come together now more than ever to build food security for our neighbors.”
