Hands Across The Valley was founded in 1994 when George Altamura learned that the Napa Food Bank was running out of money. He and other leaders in the Community, decided to come together to do something about the situation.
Since then, Hands Across The Valley has succeeded in raising well over $2,000,000 to benefit Napa Valley’s Safety Net Food programs.
We support multiple organizations like Napa Valley Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, The Table and Salvation Army. In addition to supporting these organizations, the Safety Net Food Committee meets monthly to collaborate on the needs of all the food programs, including churches and non-profit organizations, that provide meals or food in Napa County in a variety of ways.
