About Us

Every year we assist 14,000 families with children and seniors that do not have the resources to keep pace with inflation. They turn to Visalia Emergency Aid Council (VEAC) for a ray of hope as they cope with poverty-driven circumstances. While it’s not always possible to fulfill everyone’s needs we provide a wide variety of services that support our mission…to feed, clothe and shelter.

Food Pantry – Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday 8am-5pm, 3rd & 4th Saturday of each month 8am-12pm
Our food pantry is the largest in Tulare County. We assist over 800 families (1,500 children) every month with basic nutritional food such as rice, beans, oatmeal, juice products, dairy products, and fresh fruit or vegetables. Qualified families must meet the guidelines based on household income and number of members living in a residence. Basic provisions help alleviate hunger.

Through donations from the community to the VEAC Thrift Store on Houston Ave., we are able to provide the needy with free or reduced cost clothing, household goods, and reconditioned refrigerators or gently used furniture.
