We believe in the power of community. We collaborate and build strong relationships, based on trust, with and among those who share our vision of ending hunger in Los Angeles County. We seek out and are responsive to the input and counsel of our partners.
Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Accessibility
By embracing the principles of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA), we strive to foster a culture that minimizes bias and addresses inequities in our society. This IDEA focus leads to better outcomes and improved service to people experiencing nutrition insecurity.
We respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with justice, equity and compassion. We honor the lives, concerns and stories of people we serve and expect our partners to do the same. We accept one another and encourage diversity of thoughts and ideas.
We believe service to others is fundamental to our work. We serve with excellence, compassion and responsiveness to meet the needs of those with whom we work, internally and externally. The better we serve, the more people we bring together in commitment to our vision.
Stewardship and Accountability
We keep faith with the public trust through the efficient and compassionate use of resources entrusted to us and are mindful that our mission is accomplished through the generosity of others. We maintain and communicate accurate and timely information on our programs and results. We evaluate and account regularly for how resources are used to implement and achieve our mission. We act within the spirit of agreements, contracts and the law. Our intentions and actions will be transparent and above reproach.
