About Us

In 1965, with the support of the Valley Ministerial Conference, the concept for Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Bank was born. For over 25 years the program services were housed in 3 different church facilities as special needs expanded. In 1995, Jim Pease, Jr. raised money to purchase a building at 420 W. Wyoming Ave. to provide affordable facilities for nonprofit agencies to serve the community.
