Our Mission

The Rescue Mission Alliance Antelope Valley is a volunteer driven, faith based, non-profit community outreach founded by John and Denise Perry in 2013. Our mission is to “Meet the Need.” We can’t do everything, but we must do something. At AVDC we aim to meet the need in the Antelope Valley and surrounding communities who do not reside near assisting resources. We are committed to helping resource the food insecure and bring hope to all families in the Antelope Valley area.

Since the AV Dream Center started, we have been able to help families and individuals through our pantries on our SERVE Days.  We distribute groceries to thousands of food insecure families each month. These groceries give families the ability to cook healthier, more balanced meals, and to supplement their budgets to allow for other bills to be paid, prescriptions to be picked up, and gas tanks to be filled.

By meeting the needs of thousands of families, we are bringing hope into their home. This mission allows us to tackle some of life’s challenges and provide preventative and supportive care to those in dire need.

Together we can make a difference, together we can “Meet the Need.”

How we get our food to fight hunger and feed hope

Grocery Stores & Restaurants

74% of our food donations come from local businesses in our community. Many of these donations include fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.

Food Manufacturers

Overstocked or discontinued food items that would otherwise go to waste are put to good use at the food bank.

Food Drives

Most of the canned goods and other non-perishable food items we receive come from food drives. Caring members of the community organize food drives at their workplaces, schools, clubs, churches, and synagogues.
