A Statement from The Foodbank Team

 

When we moved to our current location in 2013, we intentionally chose a building located in zip code 45417 — a predominantly black neighborhood in Dayton with some of the highest poverty rates in the area — because we believe we should work alongside the people we serve. Our diversity statement is “The Foodbank values all people without judgement.”

In keeping with that statement, we deliberately hire and cultivate a diverse staff that includes people of color, women, LGBTQ individuals, and people from various other backgrounds. We actively recruit team members who have previously been incarcerated. About one third of our current Foodbank team joined this hunger relief work after exiting the criminal justice system.
