A community of giving
Make a Greater Impact
As the Desert’s Regional Food Bank, and one of the 200 Feeding America Food Banks in the US, we face the challenge of raising sufficient funds to supply those experiencing food insecurity with the nutrient-rich food to meet their basic needs. In 2020, FIND distributed over 24 million pounds of food, equivalent to approximately 22 million meals. Not only does the food ensure our clients do not starve, it allows them to redirect their limited income towards rent and mortgage payments to prevent homelessness, medical care to stay healthy, and lower stress to help them perform better at school and work.
Giving Society Members’ commitment to FIND helps us supply over 80 local agency partners with 75% to 100% of their food supply. In addition, we operate our own 42 Community Mobile Markets in ‘food deserts’ across our region. Every major soup kitchen, homeless shelter, religious organization, and food pantry in our Desert Region relies on FIND’s equitable distribution of fresh fruits, vegetables, protein, and dairy that we source from all across California and the United States. In total, FIND has over 150 distribution sites over a 5,000 square mile service area.
Giving Society Members invest through FIND into our communities to help our clients break the cycle of poverty and achieve long-term stability.

FIND’s Giving Society recognizes the commitment and support of FIND Food Bank’s most generous and community-minded investors. Members make a minimum annual donation of $1,000 or more each year for five years. Pledge payments can be made annually, quarterly, or monthly. Members may also designate their contribution from Donor Designated Funds.
This sustained funding ensures that FIND has consistent and regular resources to solidify our core business functions for our region. As the State of CA and the County’s recognized disaster response emergency food bank, FIND is the hub for all state and federal food deployment in our service area. The support of Giving Society Members ensures FIND Food Bank, the Desert’s Regional Food Bank, will remain strong through normal times and pandemics, always being prepared for the future.
