MHC exists to ensure that all people have access to healthy, whole foods. When visiting the Hub, community members can find groceries in our food pantry, a space for shared learning in the garden and kitchen, resources to help grow and prepare food at home, and opportunities to build community and address the root causes of hunger.
At MHC, we believe that access to healthy food is a basic human right.
The MHC Food Pantry serves community members Monday through Friday, from noon to 6 pm, offering a variety of items including dry goods, produce, meat, and dairy. Our pantry operates like a grocery - individuals and families can stop by when we're open and shop for what works for their household.

Ever tasted a carrot freshly-pulled from the soil? Planted seedlings carefully in a row? How about turning a pile of steamy compost?
In the Hub's Community Garden program, you can experience all of these and more! Our organic gardens offer space for community members to come together, try their hand at gardening, and learn how to grow delicious food organically and frugally.

MHC's Food Pantry serves an average of 3,800 community members weekly. Our Advocacy Programs asks the question of why so many need emergency food services in the first place.
From coming together over shared meals to facilitating civic engagement, MHC's advocacy program works to address the root causes of hunger as a part of increasing access to nutritious food.
