AAPI Voices: When Food is a Love Language
We believe people fuel change. We invest in people who model practical and humble leadership, give them exceptional training and experiences, and connect them to each other to foster authentic, meaningful relationships. That goes for our students, our service members, and, yes—our staff.
Here are the core values that guide our work every day.
We are responsible for tending to our own humanity
We connect with our history, we own our flaws, we unearth our shame, we evolve our biases, and we deepen our understanding of ourselves.
Communities are woven of intentional relationships
We hold each other accountable with care. We get curious about each other. We celebrate diversity and build belonging. We embrace each others’ complexity.
Leadership and learning are inseparable
We invest in people’s development with love and limits. We seek out opportunities to learn and grow. We see everyone as having agency, responsibility, and opportunity.
We reimagine systems of power
We shift power, access, and resources to those most impacted by systemic oppression. We dare to dream of a fundamentally different future.
I like working at FoodCorps because I get to work with and draw inspiration from passionate people that are making an impact, every day!
— Ina Tubilleja, Service Member Recruitment Manager
I have grown while working at FoodCorps by understanding that value isn’t just in the work you do but how you show up authentically to conversations owning your voice and lived experiences.
— Morgan McGhee, Director of School Nutrition Leadership
FoodCorps’ Action for Equity and Inclusion
In pursuing our vision, FoodCorps embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion as strategic and moral imperatives in our work. And we are convinced that for that service to be effective, we must not replicate the imbalances we see in society at large; we are working toward becoming a model for the change we seek.
