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 April 21-22, 2016

During the month of March, our two distribution centers served 842 families (2,212 adults and children).

We are a volunteer organization. You can help!
We always need volunteers to handle all the work the Pantry requires (see below). Fill out our application to volunteer as a worker at the Food Pantry.

Other Ways You can help!
Donations of money or food make our work possible. Coupons can help too! See how to find a Ralph's coupon once a month.
