Food Pantry teaches clients how to grow their own food, seeks donations

 

Believing that ending the cycle of poverty comes in part with empowerment and education, Middleton Outreach Ministry, which has one of the largest Food Pantries in Dane County, is for the second year, running an innovative program to teach and give the opportunity to people in need to grow their own food.

The MOM Food Pantry Garden, which itself is in its third year, is larger than ever.  The garden, which is located across the street from the pantry on donated land, grew over 6,500 pounds of food in 2012. 

"This year, the garden has so many client gardeners with their own plots, that we are using every inch of space on the land, and have even started a melon garden on a different plot of loaned land to increase the amount of produce available at the pantry," said Cheri Farha, manager of the MOM Distribution Center, in a news release.
