Member agencies with the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent are expected to treat clients fairly, without discrimination or prejudice.
If an agency serves a specific clientele, (for example, a senior citizen nutrition site or a daycare) that agency must have specific criteria outlining who will be served, and must apply those criteria equally to all applicable clientele.
There may be no exclusion of services based on race, appearance, age, religion, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or political affiliation of an individual.
