CANV Kids

CANV Kids Development & Family Program offers affordable full day/full year, high quality childcare for children ages 18 months through pre-K at two locations in the city of Napa. Our care is intended to be an extension of the child’s home, a place to begin learning the give-and-take of playing with other children, and a preparation for the school years ahead.

Food Pantry Network

Allows low-income residents of Napa County to receive an allotment of food from one of 7 locations every 30 days. Allotments are based on household size but will consist of meat, dairy, produce and dry and canned food items. Pantries are located in the City of Napa, Calistoga, St. Helena, Lake Berryessa, Pope Valley, Angwin, and American Canyon.

Emergency Food Pantry

Free Food Market

Free Food Markets are a program to provide more fresh fruits and vegetables to the Napa community on a regular basis. It occurs every Friday at various locations. Often, other non-perishable food items are offered as well. There is no income eligibility.

Non-Profit Agency Access

The Food Bank contracts with 43 local non-profit organizations who serve vulnerable, low-income people, allowing them access to a low-cost source of nutritious food. Once a week these organizations can shop for USDA Commodities and/or bulk food for only 19 cents per pound or at wholesale cost – based on the source of the food.

Non-Profit Agency Access

Senior Brown Box Program

Enables seniors age 60 or older to remain independent as long as possible by giving them a “Brown Bag” with approximately 10 to 14 food items twice a month. Items may include fresh fruit, canned vegetables, oatmeal, bottled beverages, pasta and canned meat.

Meals on Wheels

Home-bound frail seniors who still live in their own home may benefit from a home-delivered daily meal. Our volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers will bring you a nutritious meal along with some lively conversation. We’ll check in with you each day, make sure you’re doing well, and bring you food you need to continue to live a healthy life.
