To alleviate hunger and its root causes.
Achieving our mission is done in two parts: providing emergency food relief to individuals and families, as well as implementing a preventative stance against the various causes of hunger.
To inspire and grow a network of community health.
Through our efforts, we hope to be a positive influence and provider for healthy lifestyles, professional growth, and opportunities to serve the community.
People come first. We act out of concern for others and seek to live selflessly. We respect those we work with.
We are grateful. We like each other and the work that we do. We take our mission seriously, but enjoy the process.
We work together with shared values and programs for the good of the entire community, inspiring others to contribute.
We tell the truth, are reliable and trustworthy, and are responsible with the resources given to us.
We seek to be efficient and effective, not perfect, but always getting better.
