In partnership with the Dane County Dairy Promotion Committee, Second Harvest, and the many Girl Scout troops who sell Cookie Shares, MOM was gifted 1,094 gallons of milk in 2019!

Cookie Shares is a Girl Scout community service project which allows girls the opportunity to sell a box of cookies called Cookie Shares to interested community members who then donates that share to our nation’s soldiers, charitable organizations or food pantries like MOM.   

Interested Girl Scout troops and their families were invited to MOM for a tour and participation in Scout Day which annually is scheduled to coincide with the Boy Scouts Scouting for Food Campaign.  It’s a day of fun and community support and cookies!

Scouting for Food is a national program of the Boy Scouts. Each year, local Cub and Boy Scouts leave plastic bags for their neighbors soliciting canned food items. One week later, the Scouts return to pick up and deliver the bags of food to their chosen food pantry or food bank. This has become one of the largest community food drives in support of MOM annually.

This year area Boy Scouts collected 2,393 pounds of non-perishables combined with many boxes of donated cookies from March until May from individual Girl Scouts, going beyond the Cookie Shares, and 1,094 gallons of milk provided all the fixings for Spring dishes for MOM’s food pantry.

How does the milk get to MOM? Gratitude abounds to our partners at Second Harvest who work to coordinate the safe transportation of this perishable product to pantries chosen by the scouts, like MOM.

A special thank you to Tom Gilbert for coordinating this year’s Scouting for Food Campaign in support of MOM and others. 

Great things happen when we work together! Thank you.
