The most needed food items include: Canned tuna/chicken, canned beans, any canned vegetables or canned fruit, canned soup, rice, pasta/pasta sauce, bottled water, juice, peanut butter/jelly, oatmeal/dry cereal, any pop-top canned items (for homeless), granola bars, ramen noodles and juice boxes.
The Salvation Army Santa Clarita Valley Corps offers a wide range of programs to local people in need. They help with food, clothing, essential items, holiday assistance, addiction resources, aid in disaster recovery, and provide resources and services for seniors.
