Providing Food Assistance For Families in Need
Khalsa Food Pantry was established in 2013. Since the pantry opened its doors in Pacoima, CA, we have served hundreds of families per week with a variety of food items. Our volunteers are the fuel behind the success of the pantry. As a result of their consistent efforts, Khalsa Food Pantry has become a recognized name and resource in the San Fernando Valley - Los Angeles, CA.
Khalsa Food Pantry is a grassroots organization in Los Angeles, CA that provides food assistance to low-income families. Our sole motivation is to implement the message of Guru Nanak to help anyone in need. The food pantry is open every Friday from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Food items distributed include canned goods, rice, beans, juices, bread, and produce. Each week, food is picked up from a regional food bank, donations are received from local farmers and local businesses, and food is purchased by our organization in order to serve those in need. We are located at Khalsa Care Foundation Gurdwara in Pacoima, CA and every dollar goes to towards the purchase of food!
In the past few years, we are proud of the following accomplishments:
- partnership with LA Food Bank
- consistently providing a variety of high quality food items
- hot meals every week
- established volunteer base of 40 passionate volunteers
During the pandemic, we saw a sustained and dramatic increase in demand for food assistance. Each week, we were serving 700+ familes at our main location in Pacoima and another 250-500 familes across so-cal! In one year alone, we served over 3 million pounds of food. This is only possible because of our amazing volunteers, donors and partnerships.
We welcome volunteers of all ages to sort, organize and distribute food to families in need and be a part of this special opportunity in tackling hunger in our city.
Your Generous Support
We are also more than grateful for any monetary donations, food donations or sponsorships. With your tax-deductible donation, we will be able to sustain the provision of food for the families that come into our pantry, and expand further to create a space for future tutoring programs and a free health clinic.
