Bellingham Food Bank believes Black Lives Matter.
We recognize that structural racism benefits the dominant white culture and disadvantages people of color.
We believe that hunger is unacceptable and that racism is interwoven in our food system and is a root cause of hunger.
We must work for racial justice and equity. Bellingham Food Bank is committed to doing work to be an anti-racist organization.
We will educate ourselves and our community about structural racism. We will listen to people of color. We will be the strongest allies and advocates we can be.
