THE FAIRFIELD COMMUNITY CENTER EXTENDS WELCOME TO ALL

EAST FAIRFIELD – The Fairfield Community Center is committed to ensuring that every person in our community has the food they need to reach their human potential. Those with the courage to ask for help must trust that the Fairfield Community Center cares only about their human potential. Making that personal, trusting connection means that anyone—regardless of national origin, race, gender, culture, age, income level, disability or any other attribute—should feel the place they access food assistance is open, diverse and welcoming. In response to the current social and political climate, the Fairfield Community Center wants every individual in need of food assistance to be assured that they are welcome to access the food and services we provide without concern for their safety or privacy.

As a member of the Vermont Foodbank, the state’s largest hunger relief organization, the Fairfield Community Center has joined together with other Foodbank member organizations to commit to treat our neighbors with dignity and respect. Any information collected is used only to provide better service to our neighbors. Food is a basic human right, and the Fairfield Community Center is a sanctuary for those seeking to exercise that right.
