Mission Statement
Helping those in need in our community.

The North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry is a viable demonstration to the Valley and to our City illustrating that people of religious diversity can, and, do come together on the common ground of serving those needing assistance.

The North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry (NHIFP) is a 100% volunteer coalition of diverse religious institutions and individuals working together to address the problem of food insecurity in the community. Currently we are a coalition of 13 participating congregations and distribute 260+ bags of food two mornings a week, 52 weeks a year.

COMING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Pantry was formed 35 years ago by five very dedicated women who came from different religious congregations in the East San Fernando Valley and saw the growing problem of hunger right in their own backyard.

How It All Began...

The Interfaith Pantry opened its doors on March 13, 1983 in a Sunday school room at First Christian Church with Temple Beth Hillel providing storage space for the food which continues to this day.

How We Work
