This Blog features news, stories and resources from Mother Hubbard's Cupboard in Bloomington Indiana.*
Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard started in 1998 as a food pantry, and has grown into a community food resource center, affectionately referred to as "The Hub." Beyond offering emergency food assistance, we provide resources to support home cooking and gardening. We host four community gardens where folks are invited to learn and share skills about growing food.
Our nutrition program offers skill sharing around healthy eating on a budget and cooking from scratch. We believe that the best way to eat better and save money is to cook more meals at home, from scratch, using whole food ingredients.
We also work to address the root causes of hunger and poverty through our advocacy work. We host monthly "Hub Family Meetings" to address community food issues with our food pantry patrons, volunteers, and community members concerned about food access. We are thrilled to work with the Bloomington Food Policy Council and look forward to expanding our advocacy efforts over time.
