A Hunger Free Community

Our Mission: To diminish hunger by managing a food pantry and providing other services to low-income families and individuals in our community.

We feed families!  Each month over 1,000 families, seniors and individuals visit our main pantry or mobile pantries for supplemental groceries.  That's over 1,200 children who have food on the table due to our program and your generosity.  Our average family visits our pantry 4-5 times per year, that's over 5,000 unique families!  We are passionate about families in need and provide free clothing and household items to low-income households from our thrift store.

We are honored to be able to partner with Family HealthCare Network in hosting our mobile food pantry in Goshen, assist families in crisis by providing free clothing to domestic violence victims with Family Services of Tulare County, support victims of crime  through the Victim's Witness Advocates at The Tulare County DA’s office, and help at risk outpatients through Kaweah Delta Health Care Bridge Program.  Each month we operate our pantry with a large number of volunteers supplied by Tulare County  Welfare to Work program, AARP, Proteus, and CSET.  It is through these partnerships that individuals are allowed the opportunity to work for benefits, receive job training, encouragement, and a sense of purpose while they get back on their feet or find employment.  It is a win-win situation for all of us.

Our pantry was originally built in 1940 and was purchased in 1972 when we served only 200 families each month!  A new pantry will provide our organization the ability to purchase food in bulk which is not only cost-effective but improves our ability to keep food on hand for those who need it.  We hope you will consider donating to our cause and allowing VEAC to serve our community for another 85 years.
