Founded in 1971 by a group of people who felt that no person should ever go hungry in the Conejo Valley, Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank has been providing food assistance to our friends and neighbors in need for more than 40 years; and have made it our mission — “To feed hungry people in the Conejo Valley.”
Manna is situated in a 700 square-foot house in the “Old Town” area of Thousand Oaks, and serves, on average, more than 1,400 people per month. With holiday distribution programs, we help over 20,000 people each year throughout the 101 corridor cities from the Calabasas Grade to the Conejo Grade.
Unlike many food pantries in the area, Manna is not formally affiliated with any religious organization, nor are we federally funded in any way. In fact, Manna exists almost entirely on private donations of food and funding. More than 95% of the food Manna distributes each year is donated by organizations, businesses and individuals from around theConejoValley. Funding is provided through generous donors and grant writing efforts.
With 1 in 6 people facing hunger issues on a daily basis, Manna has taken a strong stance against hunger in theConejoValley. There is no quick fix to the issue of food insecurity, but with unified dedication from our grocery partners, donors and a caring public, Manna is providing the support our friends and neighbors need.
We invite you to join us in our quest, where “Neighbor Feeding Neighbor” is a daily reality.
Countdown to Halloween and the End of Hunger
Help a family in need this Halloween!
Then stop by the annual Haunted House in Newbury Park and bring a few canned goods to donate.
For 4 years Kelly and Ruben Villasenor have transformed their home into a spooky haunted house and graveyard, shown Halloween friendly movies outside and gathered almost a 1,000 pounds of food.
To join in, visit their home at 795 Green Valley Drive, Newbury Park any evening between now and November 2nd.
Special activities will be held on Halloween night.

For more than 44 years, Manna has been helping our friends and neighbors in need. And with the help of the community we can do so much more.
I urge all of you to buy a few extra non-perishable foods the next time you shop and pass those extras on to Manna where we can distribute them to families in need.
Manna is helping to change the lives of Conejo Valley families and you can help too!
