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.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to a domestic violence call resulting in deputies finding a grenade and conducting an hours-long search Monday night. Deputies responded to a report of a spousal assault on the 17300 block of Sarita Avenue, in Canyon Country, around 5:30 p.m. The suspect allegedly hit his girlfriend, who is nine months pregnant, and then apparently fled the scene. When deputies responded, they had information leading them to believe the suspect might still be on the premises, so an aerial unit was called, as well as a K-9 unit to search for the suspect.
