Our Statement on Racial Justice

At Food Bank of Central New York, our mission is to work to eliminate hunger through nutritious food distribution, education, and advocacy in cooperation with the community. As leaders in the fight against hunger, we must lend our voices to those partners and organizations calling for justice. Systemic racism lies at the heart of many issues that contribute to food insecurity across our communities and America.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion have been priorities for Food Bank of Central New York and will continue to be as we move forward. These goals are in our current strategic plan and a part of our core values and we work hard to integrate them in our daily work. As we all navigate through the days and weeks ahead we extend our support and hope that through all of this we will become a more just and equitable world for all.
