Fighting Poverty. ending hunger. locally.
BPNN operates one of the busiest food pantries in Dane County, WI. 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.
Help fight hunger with your gift
The BPNN facility and the food pantry close when Verona schools are closed due to bad weather or road conditions. Please see our bad weather policy. If you are having a food emergency, please call 2-1-1.
