Our Services

The Madison Food Center provides a five-day supply of emergency food to qualified individuals and families that reside in Madison, Ohio

To receive food, individuals are asked to provide a state-issued identification card and proof of residency (i.e. utility bill or rent receipt). The Center also requests that clients certify household size and income at the required limits set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Food distributed by the Madison Food Center is purchased at a reduced rate from U.S.D.A.-approved food banks and area grocers. Some food is donated by individuals, organizations and businesses. Personal care items are also available when possible.

Who We Serve

On average we serve over 300 families a month or over 1000 individuals. Almost half of those served are children and senior citizens. For detailed statistics on the number of families, seniors, children, and total people served, see below.

What Our Clients Are Saying

The staff at the Madison Food Center have been wonderful. They are comforting and kind. They are like a family to me.

Female, 30s, 6-person household (4 children)

I have told many people about the Madison Food Center and I’ve driven a few people there who don’t have transportation. I tell them that everyone who works there is very respectful, kind and helpful. No one is judgmental and everyone who works there is smiling. It is a really nice place.

Female, 50s, 1-person household

The Madison Food Center has been a tremendous help. We have been given a nice amount of food and it really helps when we are short on money. We are very thankful for everything.
