You may know that FIND Food Bank is the Desert’s Regional food bank, but our vision extends beyond food distributions to imagine a future where none of our neighbors go hungry. FIND’s goal is to end hunger today, tomorrow, and for a lifetime. Here, you will learn how we approach our mission through nutrition and education, public policies that combat hunger long-term, community partnerships, and the help from our community members who make the Desert a wonderful place to work and live.
Nutrition + Education
We partner with healthcare institutions, local growers, community agencies, and other nonprofits to ensure that everyone has equitable access to nutritious food and also understands the importance of healthy choices to our well-being.
From sharing affordable recipes to new research on the impact of hunger on health, there is much to learn about the future of food. Food connects cultures, communities and expresses the love that contributes to good health, financial security, and brighter futures.
To maintain vital anti-hunger programs, we share opportunities for you to take action to secure food and a financial future for those struggling to make ends meet. As the Desert’s Regional food bank, FIND is at the forefront of advocating for solutions to hunger at the local, state, and federal levels. You can make a real difference by reaching out to your government representatives and spreading the word to your network. Join us to #FINDaWaytoEndHunger for good!
