Valley View Community Food Bank is struggling for monetary donations for required supplies for National Postal Food Drive
The National Letter Carrier Food Drive "Stamp Out Hunger" provides enough donated food to help the food bank through the tough summer months when donations are at it's lowest. "We are really worried this year because we're already experiencing low donations. So it's crucial for us to participate in this National Food Drive", said Jesse Ramirez, Founder of Valley View Community Food Bank. "Without it, we might not make it through the summer and thousands of needy families, elderly and children won't get the food they need." We receive approx. 300,000 pounds of donated food which helps to keep our shelves stocked the tough summer months! We need to be part of this event in order to feed our community so your help is greatly appreciated!
Please consider an online donation to help the food bank with the needed funds. Thank you for your support.

Valley View Community Food Bank is experiencing a very slow start for 2014. Donations are at a record low and food drives are down by 60%. This means the food bank is unable to buy food from their suppliers and there aren't enough food drives to help fill the shelves.
Our food bank employee Tommy, reported "there are more people coming in looking for food then there are people donating money or food. It's been a real challenge to keep up with the demand."
As we approach February and March, we are hoping the community is able to support the mission and help us prepare for the summer months (which in past years are the hardest time for the food bank as the need goes up and the donations go down). Please find out more about how you can help the food bank or please consider holding a food drive or making an online donation.
With your help we can end hunger in the community!
