Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank

Founded in 1971 by a group of people who felt that no person should ever go hungry in the Conejo Valley, Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank has been providing food assistance to our friends and neighbors in need for more than 45 years. Our mission is simple — “To feed hungry people in the Conejo Valley”. Our pantry provides food to some 12,000 people annually, received from more than 1,700 food drives and collections. We partner with retailers, organizations and individuals to acquire the more than 350,000 pounds of food we need annually to support hungry families, seniors and disabled people during our three day a week pantry distribution. Manna has taken a strong stance against hunger in the Conejo Valley, but there are no quick fixes, there are no easy solutions to the reality of food insecurity. But, there are immediate steps and long-term strategies that can make a lasting impact on the people we serve. With strong relationships between retail partners, donors and the community Manna can and does respond to the needs of the Conejo Valley’s most vulnerable citizens, while holding true to our motto “Neighbor Feeding Neighbor.”
