Our Core Values

Power to the WE: The WE is stronger and mightier than the I.
WE value our uniqueness and grow through equality. WE fight
against hunger; together, we will win.

We keep PROMISES: We show up. We persist. We try, fail, and
get back up, again and again. We press forward—because we
believe in what we do and how we do it matters.

We seek SIMPLICITY: We avoid complicated. We require direct
and honest communication. Above all, we stick to our mission
to feed hungry kids.

We are TRANSPARENT: What you see is what you get. We share
what we do and how we do it. We cherish your trust.

We exist OUTSIDE THE BOX and power our mission from a
place of creative problem solving, and a can-do attitude. We
relish ideas from ALL to FEED MORE.
