Diversity Policy

Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.


Our human capital, both employees, board members, and volunteers are the most valuable assets we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent represents a significant part of not only our culture but also our reputation and organization’s achievement as well.


We embrace and encourage our differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make us all unique.

Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County’s diversity initiatives are applicable—but not limited—to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:


  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees, board members & volunteers.

  • Teamwork and participation, permitting the representation of all groups and perspectives.

  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.

  • Employer, employee & volunteer contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for the diversity.


All employees, Board members & volunteers of Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. We are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events.


Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.  Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a manager or other agency representative including a Board Member.  If you are either a volunteer or Board Member and feel you have witnessed a violation of our diversity policy, please direct your concerns to either the Executive Director of the Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County or the President of the Board.
