We are committed to a culture of responsibility and dignity and to leading our local community in the fight against hunger by efficiently providing access to food and nutritious meals. Feeding San Diego builds local and national partnerships with purpose.
We respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with justice, equity and compassion. We honor the lives, concerns and stories of people in need and expect our partners to do the same. We accept one another and encourage diversity of thoughts and ideas.
Stewardship and Accountability
We keep faith with the public trust through the efficient and compassionate use of resources entrusted to us and are mindful that our mission is accomplished through the generosity of others. We maintain and communicate accurate and timely information on hunger research, education, advocacy and service. We evaluate and account regularly for how resources are used to implement and achieve our mission.
We believe in the power of the community. We collaborate and build strong relationships, based on trust with and among those who share our vision of creating a hunger-free San Diego.
We operate with an acute sense of urgency that reflects the immediate needs of hungry people. We challenge our employees, volunteers and partners to embrace the same urgency to accomplish our shared vision.
We believe service is fundamental to creating a hunger-free San Diego. We serve with excellence, compassion and responsiveness to meet the needs of those with whom we work, internally and externally. The better we serve, the more people we bring together in commitment to our vision.
We act with honesty, trust and openness and deliver on commitments. We act within the spirit of agreements, contracts and the law. Our intentions and actions will be transparent and above reproach.
We believe that the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of our County should be reflected in our staff, Board and network of partner agencies.
Health and Nutrition
We believe in distributing quality, wholesome meals, and increasing “foods to encourage” while decreasing unhealthy foods. We believe in developing and implementing a comprehensive education plan to empower clients and their communities.
Innovation and Continuous Improvement
We believe in bringing forward new ideas and looking for better ways to achieve our mission. We are dedicated to achieving positive changes to improve efficiency and quality by working leanly and focusing on professional development.
