FIND Food Bank Social Media Community Guidelines

FIND Food Bank’s social media guidelines are in place to help create a safe environment on all social media channels run by FIND Food Bank. Individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, and socioeconomic statuses are involved in our mission to end hunger. FIND stands with all people in our community, our state, our country, and the world who join us in these principles of fairness, and who believe that equality, like hunger, is not political, but a right for all people. Our movement in hunger relief is grounded in the values of respect, diversity and integrity, collaboration, service, and accountability.

These guidelines are in place to help create a positive environment on all social media channels run by FIND Food Bank. The aim of our social media channels is to create an online space where our community can engage in positive conversations and are free to make comments, questions and suggestions. We ask that anyone engaging with our social media channels show courtesy, kindness, compassion, and respect for all other members of our social media communities.
