The Food Bank of South Jersey exists to provide an immediate solution to the urgent problem of hunger by providing food to needy people, teaching them to eat nutritiously, and helping them to find sustainable ways to improve their lives.
Seven Core Values drive our operations and relationships:
Respect - 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 in need and expect our partners to do the same. We accept one another and encourage diversity of thoughts and ideas.
Stewardship & 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 hunger research, education, advocacy, and service. We evaluate and account regularly for how resources are used to implement and achieve our mission.
Collaboration - we believe in the power of the community. We collaborate and build strong relationships, based on trust with those who share our vision of creating a hunger-free South Jersey.
Urgency - we operate with an acute sense of urgency that reflects the immediate needs of hungry people. We challenge our employees, volunteers and partners to embrace the same urgency to accomplish our shared vision.
Service - we believe service is fundamental to creating a hunger-free South Jersey. 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.
Integrity - we act with honesty, trust, and openness and deliver on commitments. We act within the spirit of agreements, contracts, and the law. Our intention and actions will be transparent and above reproach.
Diversity - we believe that the ethnic, cultural, and social diversity of our nation should be reflected in our staff and board.
