Food Banks in the San Fernando Valley

July 3rd, 2017

7.3.17 – If you’re looking for places in the Valley to give or receive food, you’re in the right place! Here’s our list of Food Banks in the San Fernando Valley.

Where to get and donate food in the San Fernando Valley

Food Forward collects and donates fresh produce every day of the week. We distribute those fruits & veggies through our “Receiving Agencies”, who give the food we recover to the people who need it. We are not a food bank — in fact we don’t even keep food at our office locations. Our goal is to get the produce from the donor to the final destination as quickly as possible. This allows us to provide over 350 hunger-relief agencies with extremely fresh, high quality produce that is good to eat and ready to go!

However, we love being able to support so many food banks, pantries, shelters, programs, and other organizations that work to reduce hunger and food insecurity. And, many of the agencies we work with are here in the SFV, right in our backyard. If you’re looking for places to get or donate food nearby, here’s a list of food banks in the San Fernando Valley.

We’ve taken a large number of San Fernando Valley food banks and split them geographically: West Valley and East Valley. Please make sure you call ahead of time to make sure they’re open! Some agencies may have updated or changed their schedules. Also, please note that some of these agencies may serve food only to specific communities or demographics. It’s always best to call first to ask.

We hope that you find this list of Food Banks in the San Fernando Valley useful. If you’re still looking, Food Oasis LA is another cool resource that you can use to find places to get, grow, buy and sell food. We wrote a post about it a little while back, and definitely recommend checking it out.
