The SCV Food Pantry needs volunteers to help with this year's NALC (National Association of Letter Carriers) Food Drive.  Ages 14 and older can help "Stamp Out Hunger" on Saturday, May 10th from 2:00-6:30pm.  The food received from this food drive allows us to continue to provide supplemental food to our neighbors in need during the summer months when the need is the highest as children are out of school and eating all their meals at home.  Help us help others...please call 255.9078 or check our  Letter Carriers Food Drive page under Events for more information. 

Thank you for visiting the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry online.

Our mission is to alleviate hunger throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.  We accomplish this with a dynamic group of volunteers who source donations, package nutritious food to stretch a family's food supply and distribute that food to qualifying residents of the SCV.

Our ultimate goal is to meet the current and future hunger needs of our neighbors in need and ensure self-sufficiency through active partnerships with other organizations throughout the community.

Whether you're seeking assistance or considering ways to help your neighbors in need, you've come to the right place!  If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Starting as a small, family-oriented school to support a growing Mandarin-speaking community, the SCV Chinese School now teaches the language to hundreds of Santa Clarita Valley families. “When we started, most of the students were Chinese families with (Chinese) heritage,” said Jinghong Li, 53, of Santa Clarita. “Now, it’s more mainstream, students with families who recognize the benefits of learning this language and see its future importance." Li, who’s the school’s executive director and founding principal, is an engineer by trade who earned a master’s degree at the University of Virginia, came to the Santa Clarita Valley more than 20 years ago to work with 3D printing, after teaching at the University of Dayton.
