Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are looking to eliminate the issue of hunger on our community members' already full plates. By having the area's largest food pantry, we work hard to make sure anyone and everyone can get to us for food and have enough to make it through until their next trip.

We collaborate with fellow local nonprofits to address immediate needs and ensure non-duplication of services with donor funding allowing our donations to stretch as far as possible. We are visited nearly 500 times a month by neighbors in need who receive food distributions weekly in our food pantry.

We have the area's largest food pantry.

We serve thousands each year and that number continues to grow. We hope to continue to be an asset for our communities.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
