Let’s end hunger
FIND Food Bank
FIND is the regional food bank serving eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino Counties in southern California. We are one of the 200 Feeding America network food banks in the United States. We are the regional emergency disaster response food bank recognized by the state and county as the first line of defense against hunger. We help feed an average of 150,000 people each month through our network of 150 distribution sites, which includes FIND’s Community Mobile Markets, and over 80 community-based partners.
FIND’s Agency Network includes about 90% of our region’s food pantries, soup kitchens, and non-profit organizations that collect food from FIND to distribute to their communities. FIND Food Bank works to promote the dignity and protect the health of the people we serve by providing nutritious, culturally appropriate food to anyone in need where it is needed most.
Let’s End Hunger.
FIND Food Bank
Our programs provide access to our clients’ core needs of healthy foods through FIND’s network of food distribution sites. Our network includes more than 100 Agencies, such as soup kitchens, homeless shelters, religious organizations, and also FIND’s free Community Mobile Markets. FIND is recognized by the State of California and the County of Riverside as the disaster and emergency response regional food bank acting as the hub for disaster food distribution to the desert region.
Our additional outreach services support clients’ access to food through other food assistance programs besides direct food distributions. These programs increase self-sufficiency for people to access the healthy food that helps them thrive.

For A Lifetime
FIND collaborates with other major nonprofits and organizations within key areas to address the root causes of hunger. We engage in research with schools, colleges, and universities, financial literacy institutions, healthcare, and workforce development sectors to identify their connections to food insecurity and effectively advocate for the community’s health and the importance of public-private partnerships in addressing hunger.
As FIND Food Bank is the regional food bank that serves our Desert Community, the importance of equity for all people is at the forefront of who we are as an organization. Our movement in hunger relief is grounded by a true spirit of breaking cycles of poverty in our communities by ensuring people of all colors have equitable access to healthy food, whether they are able to afford it or not. Through this work, we know and understand that by healing food insecurity, it provides the necessary support for people to thrive in other areas, such as Education, Health, Workforce Development and Housing, which are needed to achieve self-sufficiency and further equality for all.
Our thoughts are with all people in our community, our state, our country, and our world who join us in these principles of Equity; and who believe that Equality, like food, is not a state of politics, but truly a state of human rights for all people.
