Vision and values

Our vision

Our vision is for a UK without the need for food banks.

Our values

Our values are the fundamental driving principles that encapsulate the passion and motivation for our work.

 

Compassion: We stand in solidarity with people that need the help of food banks. We put the wellbeing of people served by food banks above everything else. We always uphold and protect their dignity.

 

Justice: We are motivated by a desire to see a more just society. It’s not right that anyone is facing hunger and poverty. Everyone should have enough income to afford the essentials.

 

Community: We believe we share the responsibility to support one another in our communities. To create change, we must work together for a fairer society.

 

Dignity: We recognise the innate value of each individual person and seek to prioritise the other person’s needs and concerns in the spirit of mutuality and friendship. Regardless of background.

 

Our founding verse

We’re an anti-poverty charity founded on Christian principles.

We work with people of all faiths and none, and are founded by Jesus’ words;

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
– Matthew 25:35-36
