CANV Food Bank

The CANV Food Bank provides a variety of nutritious food to low-income individuals, families, seniors and non-profit organizations throughout Napa County through four programs: Emergency Food Pantries; Senior Brown Bag; the USDA Commodity Program; and Non-Profit Access.

CANV Meals on Wheels

Community Action’s food and nutrition programs believe that no one should be hungry in the Napa Valley. Every day we supply healthy, life-sustaining food to local people to eliminate hunger and support healthy living.


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.
