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?

During the month of September, our two distribution centers served 775 families (2,184 adults and children).

Other Ways You can help!
Donations of money or food make our work possible. Coupons can help too! See how to find a Ralph's coupon once a month.

We accept online donations!
But we also welcome mail-in and walk-in donations. Visit our donate page for more details on how you can help.

Pantry Receives Grant from Valley Bridge Players
Last spring, the San Fernando Valley bridge players' group, Unit 561 (U561), was given the opportunity to nominate a non-profit organization in their area to receive a charity grant. This was provided by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), which U561 is affiliated with through District 23 (Los Angeles County) as part of ACBL, the national organization.

The U561 Board of Directors, headquartered at The 750 Bridge Club (next-door to the WVFP), unanimously agreed to designate the WVFP to receive this $5,000 charity grant. These funds, which arrived on September 20, will be used to help feed the many clients of WVFP. The members of ACBL-U561 and The 750 Bridge Club are extremely pleased to be able to assist their good neighbors at the WVFP!

Volunteers needed! You can help!
The NCL mothers and daughters have completed their summer participation in the Pantry so we are in need of additional in Pantry volunteers to fill open spots (especially on Monday). We also need people with muscle who can lift 25 pound boxes to work mornings in the storage ares. If you would like to join our team, please fill out our on-line volunteer application.

Food Donations
The Food Pantry is indebted to the many organizations that collect and donate food. Our slide show (above) high-lights two organizations: the DC Collective and the Hale Charter Academy. These food donations are an important contribution to out ability to feed those in need.

More Food Donations Needed
The Pantry will need more food donations than usual this year since the Scout Drive-Thru is not scheduled to happen. Julianne Sorice, our food drive coordinator, has compiled a list of our most needed items (click here) . Help us feed our clients by bringing some of these items to the Pantry.
