We empower organizations with bar raising TALENT and progressive expansion solutions
We are so grateful for our incredible growing partnership with the Los Angeles Rams! It is extra special for us to be partnering with a team that is so invested in the City of Los Angeles and its residents. Members of the Rams family recently surprised us at the pantry with a generous donation and an honor for our Executive Director, Debbie Decker. Debbie was named the Rams' second "pLAymaker" honoree of 2023. Visit the link to read more about how we are all coming together to end hunger.
This May, the National Association of Letter Carriers will be collecting non-perishable food donations from households on their routes, and those donations will be making their way to food banks and pantries across the country. The West Valley Food Pantry will receive thousands of pounds of food and we need all the energetic volunteers we can get to help us sort through it all!
Bring your friends and family (ages 5 and up), and join us on Saturday, May 20th from 10:00 am -1:00 pm. Sign up here:
Pantry staff, volunteers, the Rt. Rev. John Harvey Taylor (Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles), Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel, Councilmember Bob Blumfield, County Supervisor Lindsay Horvath, the Rev. Canon Rand Reasoner, and supporters from the community celebrated the groundbreaking of our new home, the West Valley Food Pantry Community Center!
In July of 2021, we received a generous grant from the office of State Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel for $3.5 million, allowing us to launch an exciting new project. At the celebration, Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel announced that the Pantry would receive another $1.5 million from the state! This grant will greatly help securing the funds needed to begin Phase 2 of the building. We thank the state, the city, and the county representatives and agencies and all of the volunteers and contributors that have helped make this dream come true.
