Please call our Kids and Families Together office if you have any further questions or concerns at 805-643-1446. Thank you for your patience and understanding.



Kids & Families Together clients will now be able to shop at the pantry only 1 Tuesday a month for Pantry. Clients have the option to get USDA only food items 1 additional Tuesday a month. Clients may apply at the Project Understanding Intake office (located at 819 Thompson Blvd, Ventura) for an additional Pantry voucher, but must qualify under the Project Understanding requirements to receive a pantry voucher. Project Understanding Pantry vouchers maybe used on Tuesdays or any of the Project Understanding pantry days.

General requirements for Project Understanding are:

  • IDs for all adults in the household
  • Proof of income – Wages, SSI, SDI, unemployment, CALWORKS, Foster Care benefits, or Veterans benefits
  • Must fall within the Federal Maximum Incomes Guidelines. (see below)
  • Proof of address – Rental Agreement, Utility Bill (not a cell phone bill) in your name with service address
  • Proof of dependents – ID cards, medical cards, guardianship letter or adoption paperwork.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your family. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Project Understanding Pantry Manager or your Kids & Families Together case worker. Thank you.
