Mother Hubbard's Cupboard has been serving the c

something something something 

and also something else 

Our Mission: the table around which we gather, the work we come to mutually.

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

Our Vision: the bouquet of flowers serving as a centerpiece on the table, reminding us of the beautiful tomorrow we're aiming for.

       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.

Our Values: the food that nourishes and sustains us.

       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.

Assumptions: the sturdy platters upon which our values and work sit.

Strategies: the utensils that we use to dig into our shared work.

Outcomes: the many hands around the table, coming together in community and collective power.
