Covid-19 Information

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.

Get Food

Pantry Drive Through
We have primarily switched to a drive-through car service to serve you safely. Clients without a vehicle can use our walk-up window.


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 are invited to come once per week.

Get directions to the West Valley Food Pantry.

Donate

Food Parcels ready for clients
We need to raise $20,000 each week to purchase enough food to meet demand.




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.

Volunteer

Volunteers pack Food Parcels
Volunteers make the food pantry possible, but many of our long-time and elderly volunteers are no longer able to help at this time.


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.

Learn more and sign up to volunteer at the pantry.
