A Statement from our Leadership
The Acton Community Supper and Food Pantry stands with our Black community and condemns racial violence and police brutality. In the midst of the worst health crisis of our lifetimes, people of color are being disproportionately hurt by the pandemic, its economic fallout, and food insecurity.
Though we are a small organization, we are committed to finding resources to implement sensitivity and inclusivity training for our staff and volunteers, following our mission of serving all in need while providing a safe space for all people in our community to come for support. By embracing the principles of diversity and inclusion, our community is strengthened.
The outpouring of monetary support to the pantry during the COVID-19 crisis has been incredible. We encourage you to also look for community and national organizations promoting Black voices and supporting where you can to help this urgent and important cause at this pivotal time in our nation’s history.
Join us as we continue working towards a more just America — a nation that knows no racism, no inequity, and no hunger.
