Come on in...
The West Valley Food Pantry is doing more than feeding the hungry.
We are offering community members the help they need to truly thrive.
Almost 3,000 people and 26,000 meals per month: that's just where
feeding community begins.
Our community is our responsibility. We invest in the futures of our
clients because we feel that our service can lead to better lives.
We extend our services to unemployed residents, the working poor,
the homeless, and those living on fixed incomes.
Walk through our doors and connect with the people around you.
Feels good, doesn't it?

Kol Tikvah Yom Kippur Food Drive
Keeping a tradition that began in 2001, Temple Kol Tikvah held a food drive for the Pantry
as they celebrated Yom Kippur. Under the direction of Samantha Duenas, the youth minister,
79 young people and their parents turned out to collect, sort, and box the donated food.
Volunteers from the Pantry and from Sober College loaded the boxes into our storage containers.
The drive netted nearly 300 sorted boxes of food (770 unsorted bags full) and $200 in cash.
Many thanks to this wonder congregation and their tradition of beginning the New Year
by helping feed those in need.

November is a Month of Food Drives
Many organizations have stepped forward this November to help the Food Pantry
through food drives and help sorting. The annual Scout sponsored Calabasas Drive-Thru Food Drive
gathered ten pallets of food on November 11 and 12. A work crew from El Camino Real Charter
High helped sort and stow the food the scouts collected.
Other schools in the area contributed as well. Justice Street Elementary, Ivy Academy,
Welbey Way Elementary, and Lockhurst Haynes Elementary all held food drives. Viewpoint
School (Calabasas) sent students to help sort.
And local companies and groups Time A Crump, National Notary, Vasht Organization, Keller William Reality,
Health Net, and Life Care Assurance held food drives, while Invitemanager sent a crew to help with
Our thanks to all the groups and individuals that have taken time to share with those in need.
