WV Grocery Distribution.

The monthly grocery bag distributions has been terminated due to the WV Community Center reopening. There is no space to accommodate the groceries and the available pantry space is being used for the USDA surplus commodity distributions. As announced at the last grocery bag distribution (8/4) and USDA food distribution (8/17), the WV grocery bag distribution program has ended with the reopening of the WV Community Center due to limited storage space. The 29 Palms Food Bank is still providing a monthly grocery bag for Wonder Valley residents who need it - they are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30-11 a.m. and the first Saturday of the month from 9:30-11, They are located at 6450 Stardune Avenue and their phone number is 760-361-3663. People who have registered during the WV grocery bag distribution will already be registered at the 29 Palms location.

The Friends of Wonder Valley is partnering with the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry and Outreach Ministries INC. for a Grocery Distribution, at 10:00 a.m. on WEDNESDAY, May 5, at the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526-½ Amboy Road, Wonder Valley CA 92277. The Community Center is next to the Fire Station. The event continues until 11 a.m., or until we’ve given out all the bags.

This food distribution is for Wonder Valley residents only. Please wear a mask and stay in your car.

You may pick up ONE (1) bag for a neighbor, or they may pick up ONE (1) bag for you.

Please enter the access road at the WVCC sign and continue driving around the building until you stop behind the car in front of you. Stay to the inside of the curve (left) in case someone has to leave. Do NOT get out of your car. We will come around, take your name(s), and as you drive up to the loading zone, we’ll bring your bag(s) to your car. Please be patient and follow all instructions from the volunteers. This is to insure your safety and the safety of our volunteers and staff. Thank you.

The WVCC is CLOSED. The park is closed.
