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?
During the month of June
, our two distribution centers served
761 families (2,133 adults and children).
We are a volunteer organization. You can help!
