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 April 21-22, 2016

Thank You to the Warehouse Operations
The success of our March Food Drives (and to all other Pantry operations) is due to a large part
to the contributions of time and muscle of our warehouse volunteers. Santino and Cecil
coordinated the drives. Stockers Ray Wagner, John Pan, and many others are essential to the
operation. Thank you!
Our thanks to Rocky Peak's Life Group and Farmer's Insurance who came to the Pantry to sort
donated food. And we thank the Southern California Teacher's group, the San Fernando Quilt Guild,
and residents of Bell Canyon for their generous contributions.
Thank You to the Local Neighborhood Councils
