How to donate to the Child Nutrition Assistance Fund:

The Foundation for Madison Public Schools works closely with MMSD to ensure that all schools are meeting the needs of our students.  The Child Nutrition Assistance Fund helps district families that are struggling to pay their meal account balance.  If you are interested in donating to a specific school, please call Steve Youngbauer at (608)204-4000.  Thank you for your generosity.  Families that have received donations have been very appreciative of the support.
