- To provide an efficient system of food collection from churches, individuals, groups and food suppliers.

Everyone in Canada has the right to physical & economic access, at all times, to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences.

At the Georgetown Bread Basket, we will strive to:

- Provide food and other assistance to those needing help regardless of race, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, income source, age or mental or physical disability.

- Treat all those who access services with the utmost dignity and respect.

- Implement best practices in the proper and safe storage and handling of food.

- Respect the privacy of those served and maintain the confidentiality of personal information.

- Not require payment of any kind for donated food or consumer products, at any time, from those assisted by their respective programs

- Acquire and share food in a spirit of cooperation with other food banks and food programs.

- Strive to make the public aware of the existence of hunger and of the factors that contribute to it.

- Recognize that food banks are not a viable long-term response to hunger and devote part of their activities to reducing the need for food assistance.

- Represent accurately, honestly and completely their respective mission and activities to the larger community.
