We stand in support of Black Lives Matter and have incredible appreciation for the strength and courage of Black people in the fight for justice. And we will continue to put in the work we need to do towards anti-racism to ensure that we become a more just organization, in service of a more just world—becoming better allies to our partner communities.
We believe all kids should get the nourishment they need to thrive in school and in life. However, we know it’s impossible without dismantling the institutional and structural racism that has shaped our education system, our food system, and our country as a whole.
And as a white-founded, and still predominantly white-led organization, we know FoodCorps has benefited from a culture that privileges whiteness. It’s our responsibility to ensure every step is taken to dismantle the harmful impact this has on our colleagues, friends, and partners of color––and ultimately on all of us.
