Help VEAC build a new pantry!

Just $60/sq.ft.  That is what it will cost to build a new, modern efficient pantry at our north Visalia location!  Our 1940’s food pantry, located at 217 NE 3rd Avenue has served us well but we have outgrown our facility!  Please join us as we build a pantry capable of serving the needs of VEAC families for many years.  Consider a monthly donation to the building fund or buying just 1 sq.ft of pantry space for hungry families.  Naming opportunities available.
