About the Imperial Valley Food Bank
Imperial Valley Food Bank (IVFB) is an independent, non-profit charitable corporation, created and operated for and by residents of Imperial Valley with the purpose of feeding those in need living in Imperial County. The food bank was established in 1991 and over the years has grown in size, structure, and purpose responding to increased need for food assistance by Imperial County residents experiencing hunger. Limitations at its aging facility have forced the IV Food Bank to raise funds to build a larger, energy-efficient and food safe storage facility to continue to serve the unique needs of the food insecure in Imperial County as long as there is a need.
