This September, join FIND Food Bank and our 200 Feeding America partner food banks across the country for the annual nationwide campaign to raise awareness and take action to fight hunger in the United States. For millions of Americans, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It’s a choice between food and other crucial needs—like medicine, electricity, and childcare. Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice – How will you choose to end hunger?

Leave no local hungry

Record high inflation at the gas pump and grocery stores is dragging on longer than expected, pushing more working people into food bank lines. FIND Food Bank helps feed 150,000 people each month struggling to make ends meet, and they need you to take action to Leave No Local Hungry. 

Everyone has the power to make an impact…

It all starts with one action:

Donate

$1 can provide over 4 meals

Advocate

Host a Virtual Food Drive!

Start a fundraising page online and ask your organization, workplace, or friends and family to donate to end hunger!

Donating funds over food is the most effective way to help FIND provide hunger-relief while supply chain issues continue and transportation costs increase.

Get Involved

Start your own fundraiser, register your business to be a Hunger Action Month partner vendor, or share FIND’s Hunger Fact Sheet!

Shop & Give for Hunger Action Month

Businesses across the Coachella Valley and Hi-Desert are taking action to ensure every local knows where their next meal is coming from, and they’re asking you to join in! Help support local businesses and locals in need – it’s a win-win for Hunger Action Month!

Events

Join PS Underground and FIND Food Bank for a special evening to support Hunger Action Month. Come experience exquisite one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment, including a multi-course gourmet ‘Sunday Supper’ paying homage to the ingredients found at a FIND Food Bank food distribution. Join us at the table to raise funds to ensure every person in our community can enjoy a meaningful meal.

Go Orange!

Orange is the color of hunger awareness because it stands out when hunger does not. Too often, our neighbors skip meals in silence to cover their rent, pay for medicine, or keep the electricity on—but that is unacceptable.

There are nine cities in the Coachella Valley and two cities we serve in the Hi-Desert Morongo Basin region that are committed to leaving no local hungry in their neighborhoods. To bring attention to the injustice of hunger in our communities each Coachella Valley city is lighting up City Hall, a central monument, or another city staple orange.

Take a picture of the orange you see, wear orange yourself, and keep advocating for our locals facing food insecurity!
