About MOM and Canstruction


MOM's mission is to instill hope in our community through progressive programs and partnerships to prevent homelessness and end hunger.

Through the support of business partners, area schools and faith communities, as well as numerous individuals and service organizations, MOM provides - free of charge - food, clothing, housing assistance, emergency financial assistance, and special services for seniors.

A community competition to end hunger, Canstruction® Madison brings the community together to build imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food; after the event, the building blocks are donated to the MOM Food Pantry, one of the largest pantries in Dane County.  Held each year at West Towne Mall, teams, sponsors and volunteers are welcome.  Community members are invited to view the structures and participate in voting for the People's Choice Award.
