Ever wonder who it is you are talking to on the phone? Because we here at Mom’s Pantry believe so strongly in personal service we wanted to put faces to names for you and give you a little insight into why they do what they do and what they love about it. The team at Mom’s Pantry has dedicated years of their lives to this business and to them it is much more than profit and loss…it is about people and community! So, here are the people that will help you reach your fundraising goals:
Oh…and have you ever asked yourself, “Who’s Mom” or “Is there really a Mom”? Believe it or not there is a real mom behind Mom’s Pantry Products! Mom works alongside the staff to ensure that every fundraiser is a success and that every product out our door is of high quality and what an advantage it is to be fundraising with a “Mom” in your corner because as they say “Mom knows Best!”
What I love about Mom's Pantry is the really good conversations I have with customers, when I get the chance to know and learn what their school or group is about. I like knowing how they are doing from year to year and I love helping them as well.

Since the beginning, I have always loved talking with the groups and being able to provide them with quality food and products. I love the food and am so glad that it finds its way to families' tables all over Canada and helps them raise funds for their programs.

What I love about Mom's Pantry is that there is a true sense of caring. From the family behind the business to the incredible team that works hard every day to help communities and groups raise money that is so needed to run their programs. The team at Mom's is family in every sense of the word and truly cares about each other and those who fundraise with us.

I am thrilled that we have added Turkey Rub to our order form. It adds so much flavour with next to no time involved in preparation! It will give everyone that little extra boost of confidence when cooking the holiday turkey.

One of my favourite MP products is Montreal Chicken Spice - I use it on almost every meat dish I prepare, but the best recipe is for "Beer Butt Chicken". Yummy!
One of the things I love about Mom's Pantry is when we all get together for a special occasion, like Thanksgiving, everybody brings a dish and we all enjoy good food and good times.

I think it's great that Mom's Pantry is shifting toward more health conscious foods and no salt spices.
