About our Work
Leah's Pantry believes everyone deserves nourishing meals every day. Through innovative nutrition programs, we inspire healthy habits and build resilience in children, adults, and seniors in low-income communities across California. We believe healthy eating is not only about what you eat but also about a positive connection to food and the people you share it with.
We take a trauma-informed approach to both public health nutrition and hunger relief. Our community-based programs fall into three distinct but overlapping areas. Click the icons below to learn more.
