Our Commitment to Health:
At Tenino Food Bank Plus, we believe taking care of families means providing equitable access to healthy foods that enable them to thrive. To acknowledge our understanding of the role nutritious foods play in preventing and treating chronic illnesses associated with food insecurity, we strive to offer food choices that reflect our clients cultures, support individual health needs, and align with food preferences. Our Food and Nutrition policy demonstrates our commitment to the quality of the food we offer and serves as our guiding principles for food purchasing, donation preferences, and distribution of food. We will also leverage this policy to address the national food system shortages by increasing the visibility of our organization and our clients' needs in our often under-resourced rural community.
