The Food Pantry at Valley Bible Church first opened in March of 2008 and has served over 200 families and has distributed over 80,000 food items to the Tri-Valley Community. The Food Pantry distributes food from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday evenings each week. Over the past few months, the needs have increased from 17 families to almost 28 families per week.
At this time The Pantry is in need of food or cash donations to support this community service. Cash donations go directly to purchasing food. The pantry is staffed by volunteers from Valley Bible Church and the community and there are no administrative costs.
Suggestions for donation: canned and non-perishable items
canned vegetables or fruits, canned chicken, tuna, peanut butter, soups, pasta, rice, dry or canned beans, pasta sauces, juice, oil, sugar flour, sugar, dessert mixes, dried fruit, granola, energy bars, fruit juice, oatmeal, cereal, pancake mix
We accept donations of fresh fruits and vegetables on Thursdays only. If you have a garden or fruit tree on your property we can help harvesting the produce.
You can drop off donations in the food barrels at Valley Bible Church, 7106 Johnson Drive, in Pleasanton next to Club Sport or at Towne Center Books at 555 Main Street in Downtown Pleasanton.
For more information, please call Kim Chew 925-462-0010.
