Debbie Espinosa

President & CEO

FIND Food Bank’s mission embodies my core belief that one must care for others before self. Our place is to serve, and I am honored to lead an extraordinary team that ensures every person in the Desert knows where their next meal is coming from.

Kevin D.

Working for an organization that gives so much to so many is an honor.  FIND Food Bank is a part of the solution and I am excited to be a part of it too!

Lorena M

Director of Community Impact

I have dedicated myself to FIND’S mission over the last 8 years because I strongly believe that everyone should have access to a healthy, nutritious meal, and no one should go to bed hungry. I am proud to be part of a team and organization that truly makes a difference in the communities we serve.

Tom T

Director of Development and Community Relations

My career has been focused on helping people improve their health and well-being through access to quality healthcare. Addressing food insecurity is the foundation upon which those efforts will always rely.
