The Merrimack Valley Food Bank recognizes diversity, equity, and inclusion as an essential component of our values and our mission to combat food insecurity. We value the unique experiences and backgrounds of our team members, board members, and the people we serve. The belief that all members of our community deserve access to nutritious, culturally relevant food is key to our operations and decision-making.
We also recognize that, while we work to fight the daily impact of food insecurity in our community, action is also necessary to combat its root causes. This includes promoting racial, gender, and economic equity in the interest of advancing social justice. MVFB aims to engage with and learn from our community and their expertise and experiences, as we seek to advance equity in the food system through our partnerships and programs.
