Host a Healthy Food Drive!
Food insecurity limits one’s access to healthy, culturally appropriate food items due to various financial, systemic, and geographical obstacles. Equitable food access is at the heart of a healthy community, and you can help by donating nutritious meal items to empower our neighbor’s mental health and prevent chronic health issues. Host a healthy food drive and collect high-fiber, low-sugar, whole grain food items that follow USDA’s MyPlate guidelines for a healthy lifestyle.
Download the Healthy Food Drive Flyer for much-needed food donations. Share the flyer with your community to make an even greater impact!
Note: FIND cannot accept ready-made or homemade food items
Pick Up a FIND Food Bin
Take action to support your community by requesting to hold a FIND food bin at your workplace, community space, country club, etc. You can check out a food donation collection bin for an extended period of time to host a company-wide food drive or encourage donations from patrons year-round. Once your bin(s) are full, call 760-775-3663 ext. 117 to schedule a pick-up. Our warehouse team will collect the bins, bring the food to sort in our warehouse and return them upon request.
Drop-Off Donations at FIND Food Bank
Drop-Off all your donations at FIND’s administrative office and warehouse in Indio:
83775 Citrus Ave, Indio, CA 92201
Ring the doorbell and a FIND team member or volunteer will answer to help accept your donation.
Host a Virtual Food Drive
Traditional food drives are a great way for our community members to help raise awareness of hunger and support their neighbors. However, due to the rising costs of transportation and labor shortage, it is more challenging and expensive for FIND Food Bank to assist with traditional food drives.
By hosting a Virtual Food Drive, your donations can go farther by helping FIND purchase the most needed food items in bulk. Donating the cost of a canned food item allows FIND to provide 4 full meals to those experiencing hunger in the desert.
