Come on in...
The West Valley Food Pantry is doing more than feeding the hungry.
We are offering community members the help they need to truly thrive.
Almost 3,000 people and 26,000 meals per month: that's just where
feeding community begins.
Our community is our responsibility. We invest in the futures of our
clients because we feel that our service can lead to better lives.
We extend our services to unemployed residents, the working poor,
the homeless, and those living on fixed incomes.
Walk through our doors and connect with the people around you.
Feels good, doesn't it?
The Pantry will be closed Monday, July3
and Tuesday, July 4
During the month of May
, our two distribution centers served
863 families (2,060 adults and children).

Jessica Valentine Memorial
Jessica Valentine, a former NCL teen volunteer, tragically died December 2016. Her family asked that
donations in her name be given to the Food Pantry. Friday, June 17, Jessica's family placed a plaque in
her memory in the Pantry. The donations given in Jessica's name will be used to help fund the Back to
School drive (that Jessica loved) over the next few years. (See the pictures in the slide show above.)
Thank You Luncheon for Sober College Volunteers
Volunteer students from Sober College were recognized and thanked at a luncheon Thursday,
April 27, 2017. The students volunteered their "spare hours" 2 or 3 days a week sorting, packing,
moving, and organizing our storage units in preparation for the National Postal Food Drive. Their
hard work is much appreciated.
The Food Pantry begins a new program for homeless in the West Valley. (see News)
Food Donations Needed
The Pantry continues to need food donations as we step up our efforts to feed the homeless in our
community. Julianne Sorice, our food drive coordinator, has compiled
