FIND: Feeding the Region During the Holidays – And Beyond

FIND Food Bank, which is based in Indio, is the only regional food bank serving eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino Counties in southern California. The organization distributes 10+ million pounds of food assistance annually to an average 90,000 individuals each month across our service area.

FIND Food Bank has a network of 100+ community-based partners whose programs include food pantries, soup kitchens, after-school and summer care, senior centers, faith-based organizations, and homeless shelters.

Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the community, or certain neighborhoods – but the reality is much different. For 1 in 6 people in the Coachella Valley, food insecurity is something they face every day.

While FIND Food Bank receives 40-50% of fresh produce from local growers and grocers, they also rely on donated products from the public as well. There is increased demand over the holiday season, and you can help.

If  you would like to donate to FIND Food Bank, bring non-perishable food items to 83775 Citrus Ave, Indio, CA 92201. FIND Food Bank also appreciates financial donations. Every $1 donated  equals seven meals at FIND Food Bank.
