We recognize that food insecurity disproportionately affects diverse communities and we also work to raise awareness for this growing inequity.

- Supporting Traditionally Marginalized Communities: We are committed to standing up for injustice and equity, supporting organizations that challenge economic justice, and uplifting traditionally marginalized communities.

- Disaster Relief: In the event of natural disasters which severely impact the communities we serve, we provide disaster relief through financial or grocery donations to centers and organizations supporting evacuees and first responders.
