Hunger is Unacceptable in Our Community.

    A Message from the Northfield Township Board

    The Board of Trustees of Northfield Township feels it is important to share our position on concerns related to race, inequality, oppression, and opportunity for all.

    We feel strongly, and act accordingly, that all are created equal. In our roles, we see that opportunity, however, is not always afforded equally and that some among us occasionally need a helping hand. Northfield Township is committed to treating all people – regardless of race, national origin, sexual identity, disability, age or religion – fairly and equitably.

    The services we provide, including help to people in need and assistance to residents with a variety of administrative service concerns, are offered in an equitable manner to all clients.

    Northfield Township is dedicated to fostering a culture in which all people from any background are treated with respect, dignity, kindness and empathy, as every human being deserves. This applies to clients, staff, residents, and visitors. We shall always strive to serve every member of our community to the best of our abilities as they deserve no less.

    We encourage ourselves and our community to look inward for strength, empathy, kindness and understanding. We support the path to equity and equality for all. We look forward to each engagement with our clients and community and appreciate the opportunity to serve.

    The health and safety of our clients, volunteers and staff remain our top priorities. We are following all required prevention guidelines including wearing masks/face coverings, gloves and practicing social distancing. We have changed to an outdoor food pick up system for our clients. Additionally, prior to a shopping cart being returned to the pantry it is wiped down and volunteers and staff are routinely disinfecting all surfaces in high traffic areas.

    Please continue to take recommended precautions ( including social isolation if you’re experiencing any symptoms of illness.

    As our needs change we will continue to share updates.

    We have been overwhelmed by the tremendous outpouring of support for the pantry and for our neighbors in need from our entire community during this challenging time. It is heartwarming to know that all of us share the belief that Hunger is Unacceptable in Our Community.
