About Valley Community Pantry

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.” – Mother Teresa

History of the Community Pantry

The Community Pantry was established in 1965 by Reverend Roy Schippling of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Hemet. As its mission grew and the needs of the local community increased, the Community Pantry became an important resource in this valley and to the County of Riverside. In 1992, the Community Pantry received its certification as a non-profit 501(c)3, providing charitable tax deductions to our supporters.

Community Support

Throughout the year, the Community Pantry works with companies, agencies and churches to sponsor events to collect staple food and raise funds that are vital to our operation. During the holiday season the needs of our community are great. If your company or organization would like to schedule a food drive or fund raising event, please give us a call.
