BloomingVeg

Websitehttps://www.bloomingveg.org
AddressBloomington, IN
Description

BloomingVeg is an all-ages social and advocacy group for vegetarians, vegans, and veggie-lovers alike in Bloomington, Indiana. BloomingVeg was founded in 2012 in part to organize outings, helping at the local animal sanctuary, promoting & publicizing vegan dining options in Bloomington, leafleting, demonstrating at circuses and engaging in other friendly efforts to help others live more compassionately.

Also because eating is such a social aspect of our lives, we wanted to provide a venue for fun gatherings like Meatless Monday dinners at local  restaurants, potlucks, holiday cookie swaps and more among like-minded people.

If you are a long time vegan or vegetarian, just starting out or maybe you just like eating vegan food--BloomingVeg has something for you.

Crimson Cupboard Student Food Pantry

Websitehttps://beinvolved.indiana.edu/organization/CrimsonCupboard
Address800 North Union Street (Campus View Apartments)
Bloomington, IN 47408
Description

Parent Organization: Indiana University - Bloomington

Based on the research that has been completed on food scarcity within college campuses, the Crimson Cupboard was created to fulfill those needs of students here at Indiana University Bloomington. We provide non-persihable food items to all IU undergraduate and graduate students who may be in need of food assistance. Students will have the opportunity to shop in the pantry twice each month and they will be required to simply show their student I.D. card (Campus Access Card) to access the pantry. The amount of food that each student recieves depends on their demographic information such as: place of residence, family size, etc. Regardless, we serve to ensure that every student recieves what they need.

All students are eligible to volunteer with the pantry, and we ask that each individual maintain a high level of discretion when volunteering with Crimson Cupbaord.
