“Radiant Church is a great supporter of the food bank,” said Jesse Ramirez, founder of Valley View. “By becoming a distributor, Radiant Church is allowing us to reach more people and making it easier for those living in Surprise to get the help they need. Our goal is to make sure that anyone that needs food gets it. And this partnership will really allow a lot more people to get food on their table.”
Valley View at Radiant is open to the public and will distribute donated food to Surprise residents in need without any restrictions. The food bank will have weekly deliveries to the food pantry so they can distribute nonperishable food items and wholesome nutritious food such as local fruits and vegetables.
Radiant Church will be supervised by Joseph Ramirez, Head of Food Bank Operations and will be open to receive clients from 9am-11am every Tuesdays and Thursday. Those seeking help should come during business hours to: 15522 W Paradise Ln, Surprise, AZ 85374
About Valley View Community Food Bank
