Khalsa Food Pantry was establised in 2013. Since the pantry opened it 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.

Covid-19 Update:

We have seen a sustained and dramatic increase in demand for food assistance during the Covid-19 pandemic. Each week, we are serving 700+ familes at our main location in Pacoima and another 250-500 familes across so-cal! We've served over 3 million pounds of food this year alone. This is only possible because of our amazing volunteers, donors and partnerships.

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 


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!

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. 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.

    Still Going Strong + Vaccines

    As everything around is trying to get back to normal and re-opening, the Khalsa Food Pantry team has been continuing our work to provide food and resource assistance to the communities that are in need and affected the most. 

    We are now averaging about 650 to 1000 families each week, which puts us around 50k families served each year. The demand is still strong and very much there for this San Fernando and Pacoima community that has been hit hard by Covid. As we work through the government and food supply changes, we are still striving to source and provide a healthy and balanced meal along with hygiene kits, clothing, resources and now vaccines!

    In March 2021 we partnered with a local medical clinics organization that has been since provided thousands of vaccines to our clients and the local community we serve. We are now a well known and established center and resource for vaccines and information that the community can depend on. Based on some recent polling and research, as much as 50% of the local community in Pacoima is still not vaccinated. We wanted to provide an easy and safe way for the communtiy to come out and get their first and second doses and have been one of the longest open vaccine clinics where as other clinics have popped up and shut down.

    We are grateful to all the sponsors, volunteers, and partnerships that make the KFP what it is today.

    Khalsa Food Pantry - One year into the pandemic

    We wanted to take a moment to relay a few key updates from the Khalsa Food Pantry. A year ago when Covid-19 hit, we realized our call to action and started forming emergency response networks where Khalsa Food Pantry was going to be a key part of.

    I wanted to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to all our volunteers, sponsors and supporters. Thanks to your support, we have fed thousands of families and provided them millions of pounds of food (about 3.8M since the pandemic). We are working hard to continue providing food assistance and resources to our local communities. This requires an exceptional amount of work by extraordinary volunteers every single week. Many will be going back to work and school soon and there will inevitably be changes and hiccups with the food supplies and logistics. Nothing we can’t and won’t be able to handle.

    While we serve anywhere from 500 to 900 families on average each week at our drive thru food pantry and provide food to partner pantries to feed another few thousand families, we are a relatively streamlined and small operation. We are a fairly small group of volunteers that is predominantly young, energetic and passionate. We also must ensure that every volunteer stays safe, feels comfortable and wants to continue to come back to do sewa with us.

    Our future strategy will all depend on the food supply, donations, and how the food banks distribute and support the flow. We are also in the beggining stages of providing vaccines to the clients that come to recieve food. This is an extremely hard hit and vulnerable community and we will continue to support them however we can.

    KCF Food Pantry wants to personally thank you. Without your support, we would not be able to provide the food that we do. This year, KCF Pantry has grown in quality and number. We serve an average of 70 families a week. No matter what the weather, rain or shine, families are always here. With your support, we have been able to provide fresh fruits and vegetables every single week. The smiles that form on the families’ faces with they see the variety is beyond words. Once again, we thank you for your continuous support.
