“The summer is a difficult time of year for families with children who count on free or reduced-price lunches provided by local schools,” said Mayor Bob Kellar.

Items most desired by the Food Pantry include: tuna, peanut butter, canned meats, fruit, tomatoes, dried soups, cereal, macaroni and cheese, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, bar soap, diapers and feminine hygiene products.

“Community members can help improve the lives of those facing difficult times by contributing items as part of the City’s annual food drive,” Kellar said.

Collection bins for non-perishable food donations have been set-up at seven city facilities including: City Hall; the Santa Clarita Sports Complex; theTransit Maintenance Facility; Central Park; Old Town Newhall Library; Valencia Library; and Jo Anne Darcy Library in Canyon Country.

This is the fifth year the City has partnered with the Food Pantry to raise awareness and collect donations during the summer from the community to provide supplemental food on a short-term basis to qualified, local residents.

“The annual summer food drive comes at a critical time of year and enables us to restock depleted food items so we can continue to supply vital resources to the community,” said Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry director Belinda Crawford.

Since 1986, the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry has been distributing food to low-income residents. The Food Pantry relies on donations from the community to provide supplemental food on a short-term basis to qualified, local residents.

Our mission is no child should go to bed hungry in Santa Clarita and this effort allows us to work together to accomplish big things,” said Crawford.

Non-perishable items may also be directly donated to the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry.  Donations will be accepted from 9 a.m. to noon every Monday through Thursday.
