SOVA Community Food and Resource Program

Dear SOVA Clients,

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, we have closed the SOVA West location in the Pico-Robertson area effective Friday, March 20th. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes. We hope to reopen in the very near future when circumstances improve.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit SOVA in the Valley which remains open. It is located at

16439 Vanowen Street
Van Nuys, CA 91406
(near the corner of Hayvenhurst Ave.).

It is open Sundays 9 am – 12 noon, and Monday thru Thursday 10am – 1:30 pm.

Otherwise, you can find other pantries in your area by visiting or by dialing 2-1-1. If you have other questions, please leave a message at 818-988-7682.

Thank you for your understanding.


“SOVA” is a Hebrew word that means "eat and be satisfied."

Much more than a food pantry, JFS { SOVA provides free groceries and an array of supportive services to over 9,000 individuals of all ages, ethnicities and religions each month. At SOVA's two comprehensive service centers in the Los Angeles area, we offer:


Free nutritious food that nourishes families, helps children perform better in school, and strengthens the elderly.

Free on-site services including legal advocacy, job counseling, nutrition counseling, food stamp enrollment, information and referrals, case management and counseling.

Hundreds of people of all ages work together each week to support the program and the community. 

We reach out to the community and legislators in support of vulnerable members of society in need of food, opportunity and social services.
