About Us

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, and we fight food injustice and oppression in our community.  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 Advocacy Working Group Meetings here at The Hub to address community food issues with our food pantry patrons, volunteers, and community members concerned about food access. You can learn more about our advocacy work here, or read our advocacy-related blog posts
