North Kitsap Fishline Food Bank strives to assure an environment of mutual respect and ethical behavior.

We believe in the dignity of the human spirit and relationships built upon this belief. Creating a safe, positive shopping and working experience is our primary goal. We encourage every visitor to be honorable, constructive and, even when there are disagreements, maintain respect for one another.

We will have a truly respectful environment:

  • When everyone can interact without fear or threat;
  • When all interactions are civil and kind;
  • When no firearms, drugs or alcohol enter our premises;
  • When disagreements are handled in a peaceful way;
  • When disrespectful behavior is witnessed, swift, fair and consistent accountability is enforced.
