Fighting Poverty. ending hunger. locally.
BPNN operates one of the busiest food pantries in Dane County, Wisconsin. More than a food pantry, we also offer free community meals, nutrition education for seniors and children, hands-on cooking classes in our Prairie Kitchen, a community garden, and legal advocacy to fight homelessness and level the playing field for people without financial resources.
We are 100% volunteer - all funds raised go toward our mission and keeping the lights on. Join our team by registering as a group or individual. Learn more about us in our annual report.
