Position on Equity and Anti-Racism
Nutrition Link Services Society values diversity, inclusion, equity and social justice.
We recognize that food insecurity is rooted in historic and systemic barriers, beliefs and unconscious bias impacting the ability of individuals and families to thrive in their communities.
