Community Action of Napa Valley

Community Action of Napa Valley

What They Do:

CANV believes no one should live in poverty. We offer daily emergency assistance along with tools and skills to rebuild lives through a network of programs including the Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Child Development & Family Program, Quit Smoking, Samaritan Family Shelter and the Culinary Social Enterprise.

Community Action of Napa Valley improves lives and increases self-sufficiency for Napa’s vulnerable community. From Calistoga to American Canyon, Pope Valley to Carneros and everywhere in between, CANV feeds the hungry, serves the elderly and reaches out with dignity and respect to local people living in poverty.

We work with the entire community to identify new causes of poverty, isolation and neglect, to identify solutions and to implement proven strategies to meet new challenges.

Other Ways to Help:

•   Volunteer to deliver meals.
•   Volunteer to serve meals at a Senior Congregate Meal location.
•   Participate in a food sorting party.
•   Join the Napa Food Project, an ongoing food drive sponsored by Napa Valley CanDo.
•   Write letters to local, state, and federal lawmakers.
•   Volunteer at a pantry distribution location.
•   Purchase one-time infrastructure items (fuel, bedding, school/art supplies, dishes).
•   Donate used bags and/or reusable bags.
•   Encourage your family and friends to get involved and/or volunteer.
•   Glean local produce.

Business Partners:

Bank of Stockton, Redwood Credit Union, and Merrill Lynch/Bank of America all support CANV and the Give!Guide by distributing the Guide and sending out mailers.


CANV brings health and hope to Napa County by supporting the vulnerable in meeting their basic needs and working together to create a community where lives flourish and all matter.
