This mission statement for Spring Valley Presbyterian is: “We are a church that feeds the hungry.” We take our charge very seriously which is why we opened the Food Pantry over 17 years ago.
We primarily serve people in the West End of Huntington in both Cabell and Wayne counties. Visitors must come with a letter of referral from Cabell County's Information and Referral, Wayne County's Department of Health and Human Resources, Prestera Center, The Task Force, the VA, or other such organizations, as well as from pastors at local churches.
Our Food Pantry is open every Wednesday from 10:00am - 3:00pm.
The Food Pantry is truly a community and ecumenical endeavor. We are funded by donations of food, and funds to be used exclusively for the purchase of food, by individuals, neighboring churches, and civic organizations. Dr. Elizabeth Martin holds a food drive on our behalf, as do the students at Kellogg Elementary.
We have also received grants from the United Way of the River Cities, the federal government’s Emergency Food and Shelter Program, and the Presbytery of West Virginia.
We provide USDA Commodities, and in accordance with the civil rights policy, the USDA prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.
