In response to the increasing number of coronavirus cases in Indiana and CDC recommendations to limit the number of people sharing spaces, MHC will be temporarily changing our operating model.
Beginning the week of March 23rd, MHC will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 12-2pm and 4-6 pm, distributing pre-packed boxes of food. All non-essential programming - Kids Cook, garden and nutrition workshops, weekly drop-ins, demos, Coffee Talks - have been canceled until further notice.
MHC will keep the public updated about changes via social media, our website, and local media. Please be patient with staff and volunteers as we adapt to continue to meet the need and do our part to protect the community. If you have any questions, feel free to call at 812-355-6843.
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.
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.
