The Madison Food Center opened its doors in November of 2005. Now in its third location, it continues to seek to find ways to provide ways for residents of Madison, Ohio to care for basic food needs. Additionally, we provide programs to assist in nutrition education, educational opportunities, and contact with local agencies.
Our purpose is to provide emergency food and related assistance to prevent hunger among residents of Madison, Ohio.
The Madison Food
Center will operate an ecumenical food
pantry as an independent entity to serve those who need food and related assistance in Madison,
Ohio. Assistance will be provided
residents only. This pantry will operate with donations
and assistance from individuals and organizations contributing both food
and funds. In addition, events for the purpose
of raising funds or food donations may be conducted by Madison Food
Center. Any special
events will be proposed and approved by the Board. The Board will also have the
authority to apply for available grants from government, foundation and
corporate sources when applicable.
Food Center Honors long time volunteer Wade Stroup
The Food Center Board has dedicated the Wade Stroup Hospitality room, in memory of this long time volunteer and supporter of the Food Center. Mr. Stroup died August 24, 2013. "Wade volunteered every Tuesday for the past 8 years, since our inception; even after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer", said Co-Director Chris Van Dusen. "He was the kind of guy who did whatever was needed", said Co-Director Pat Cz-Stafford.
A reception was held the end of February by the board for his family and friends. The room is used for individual counseling with Food Center clients.
Every month, the Food Center has a variety of speakers join us to share information on their areas of expertise. These can include weatherization, the HEAP program, Ohio Benefits Bank, and other topics to help Madison residents find those programs which might be of greatest benefit for them.
You are welcome to attend the sessions even if you are not getting food. The speakers are almost always available for private conversations if anyone has specific questions.
