ONM offers basic necessities at no cost with an additional product option within their community garden where people can grow their own vegetables. The goal at ONM is to help families retain their independence and dignity while receiving the support they need to reach new work and personal goals .ONM serves an average of 250 people per day and more than 3,600 people per month. In addition to the food pantry, the nonprofit organizes youth programs, an annual school supplies drive, and partners with the Cedar Rapids Boys and Girls Club to offer recreational activities to the families it serves. ONM has an on- site registered nurse to address medical questions.
