OUR VALUES

 

SAFETY

Minimize risk of spreading COVID 19

The goal of the project is to provide assistance to families in our neighborhood while minimizing the risks of spreading COVID-19.  The project is inspired by the Invisible Hands collective in New York City.  Our goal is minimize direct contact when acquiring and delivering items. All parties in the project follow safety protocols to mitigate the risk of transmitting COVID-19.

DIGNITY

It takes courage to ask for help

Food for Families values family dignity.  We uphold family dignity by working with community liaisons who are trained in compassionate communication and family empowerment.  Our liaisons identify families in need, conduct a thorough needs assessment and then connect families through our network.

ANONYMITY

Protecting family privacy

Families in need may not want to have direct contact with a sponsor family or volunteer, or a sponsor family may not want or be able to deliver items. Our role is to provide a connection between families while preserving a families desire to remain anonymous.
