Pantry Featured on NBC Show
July of 2020, NBC’s “1st Look” show was here filming the Pantry at work! The show featured Essential Workers
and aired December 12 in the late evening. The show is posted on YouTube for those who do not watch TV late
on Saturday nights. The segment featuring the Food Pantry is about 15.5 minutes into the program.
Our mission at the West Valley Food Pantry is to ensure that No one goes away hungry. That mission
became more urgent as the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted our community life.
We committed to staying open and serving our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our
entire operations and volunteer system was redesigned to practice social distancing and keep
our clients, volunteers, and staff safe. And as the situation has evolved, we have also
evolved our operations.
We are now serving three to four times the number of families than before the pandemic began. We
urgently need the support of our community to stop hunger resulting from the Covid-19 disruptions, the changing
economy, and all of the other disruptions to community life that we have witnessed these past years. Find out how you
can access our services or support the pantry to keep our doors open.
Clients need to bring a picture ID (of any kind), preferably with your date of birth.
You must also bring a utility bill or lease agreement to confirm your address.
All the members of your household must be verified by an ID that has their
date of birth such as a drivers license, school ID, or birth certificate.
Clients may come once per week, but are limited to two visits during any month.
If you are able to give at this time, the best way you can support the pantry in this critical time
is to make a financial contribution of any amount. Your gift ensures we have the food and supplies we
need to make sure no one goes hungry.
Make a donation now.
We accept unopened and unexpired food donations between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday
through Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 am - 11:00 am. We cannot accept food
donations after these hours or on weekends. Moreover, due to our outdoor operation, we are also closed
during periods of significant rain or excessive heat (over 100) and will be unable to take donations or serve clients
during those conditions.
Please do not drop or leave food on the property unattended, as it will spoil and/or attract animals.

We are in urgent need of additional volunteers to serve the new influx of clients. Volunteers
help bag food, set up our drive-through, unload deliveries, and distribute food to client's cars.
All our volunteers and clients follow social distancing guidelines to keep everyone safe.
