The Franciscan Food Center Environment

The Food Center is a place of compassion, respect, dignity and peace for Members and Volunteers. It is also energetic, dynamic and sometimes loud. We strive to maintain an environment that is positive, fun and welcoming.

The Food Center maintains the right to accept new members at its sole discretion. The Franciscan Food Center does not exclude anyone on the basis of age, race, color, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, mental or physical disability, genetic or family medical history.

We address any issues, disputes or disagreements swiftly, with the help of our Security Officers and the Boston Police Department who work with us regularly. These groups maintain the right to require anyone to leave the premises or discontinue membership for anyone who behaves in an inappropriate manner.
