Indio City Council Recognizes FIND Food Bank

On May 15, 2019, the Indio City Council recognized FIND Food Bank for their outstanding service to the community. Established in 1983, FIND, which stands for "Food In Need of Distribution," is the only regional food bank in Eastern Riverside and Southern San Bernardino counties. They are a direct contractor with the USDA and distribute more than 10 million pounds of food annually to an average of 85,000 individuals each month. They also work with more than 100 community-based partners such as senior centers, faith-based organizations, and homeless shelters. In the Coachella Valley, one in six people are food insecure and a $1 donation equates to 7 meals. They chose Indio as their headquarters because of its strategic geographic location and it is the most populous city in the Coachella Valley. Indio is proud to be home to some of the most highly regarded non-profit organizations in the region. FIND Food Bank has been a great partner to the Indio community. Congratulations and keep up the good work! For more information about FIND Food Bank, go to www.findfoodbank.org.
