the Senior Day program. For the first time since March, some of our prior clients

the first Wednesday of every month.

Our mission at the West Valley Food Pantry is to ensure that No one goes away hungry. That mission
has never been more urgent than right now.
We are committed to staying open and serving our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our
entire operations and volunteer system has been redesigned to practice social distancing and keep
our clients, volunteers, and staff safe.
We are now serving three to four times the number of families than before Safer at Home. We
urgently need the support of our community to stop hunger from the Covid-19 crisis. Find out how you
can access our services or support the pantry to keep our doors open.
Pantry Featured on NBC Show
This last July, 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.

need to make sure no one goes hungry.

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.
