Community Update


In response to COVID-19, MHC's open hours have changed to include Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 12-2pm and 4-6 pm. During those hours we will be distributing pre-packed boxes of food from our truck bay. All non-pantry programming (Kids Cook, garden and nutrition workshops, weekly drop-ins, etc) have been canceled until further notice, and we are not accepting volunteers at this time. 


Per CDC recommendations, in order to begin reopening the pantry, we are waiting to see a consistent reduction in the daily number of cases throughout Indiana for 2 full weeks. We are still requiring everyone to wear a face mask onsite to help keep community members and staff healthy. 

Beginning the week of June 1st, MHC will be partially reopening the Hub Tool Share. For details, please visit the Tool Share page.


Mother Hubbard's Cupboard works to increase access to healthy food in ways that cultivate dignity, self-sufficiency, and community. 


We envision a community where everyone has equal access to nutritious food, waste is minimized, and all members are healthy, self-sufficient, and empowered to reach their full potential.

At MHC, We Believe That Access To Healthy Food Is A Basic Human Right


We believe that access to healthy food is a basic human right. We actively work to eliminate barriers by addressing both immediate needs and their root causes.


We recognize and invest in the power of good food to bring people together and support healthy communities.


Community is the heart of our organization. Protective relationships and collective power are built when people come together over a meal, harvest from the garden, and share skills. We facilitate inclusive spaces where individuals are invited to engage respectfully and compassionately.


We value equity and practice social justice by meeting people where they are, increasing access to resources, and facilitating connections to supportive networks.


We cultivate an organizational culture of integrity, grounded in transparency, accountability, and reflection.


Sustainability is vital to a healthy community. We value building sustainable programming, equitably supporting people, and responsibly stewarding our environment.
