Mind Yo’ Business S5:E10 – The Business of Feeding Our Community for 40 Years in Creative Ways

Nov 3, 2022

The Production House Studios welcomed in Julio Alonso and Jake Bruner on this fall crisp day to discuss their work with Bloomington’s own, Hoosier Hills Food Bank. The Hoosier Hills Food Bank (HHFB) has been keeping our neighbors fed for 40 years. 

Jake and Julio have had the pleasure of working with Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Community Kitchen, Pantry 279, and the Boys and Girls Club to ensure our community families are receiving healthy meals at their dinner tables.  

One of the biggest challenges in working with Food Banks is meeting your supply to the demand. In 2020, HHFB received an outpour of donations from the community, and in the last year alone served 1.4 million pounds of produce! That’s a lot of broccoli! To ensure they were meeting all members of the community listen in and learn how HHFB is branching out into alternative ways of delivering food when donations are just not enough. 

Gone are the days of the stigma surrounding Food Banks and feeding the “needy”. Poverty has been an issue since the Dark Ages but listen in as Julio and Jake work to navigate the issues in our community.  

Wes, are you listening? Turn down Miranda Lambert and get back to work! It’s time for the Ruby Anniversary video premiere of the HHFB!
