Food Pantry Closed for Martin Luther King Jr Day
January 17, 2022

Covid-19 Updates

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.

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). If your address is not listed on your ID please bring a utility bill to confirm your address.

Clients are invited to come once per week.

Get directions to the West Valley Food Pantry.


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.

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.
