What We Do
FIND sources food:
FIND’s food comes from donations, purchased goods, or federal government programs. We secure food donations at different points in the supply chain, from local and statewide growers and manufacturers to distributors, wholesalers and retail grocers. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)—a federal program of the USDA, helps food banks distribute diverse, pre-packed foods sourced from different people and places.
Local businesses, professional and community organizations, homeowners associations, schools and faith groups sponsor hundreds of food drives each year. Start a food drive today.

FIND stores & packages food
The FIND team collaborates with volunteers to prepare food for distribution. Volunteers inspect, sort, repack and label food for distribution to our partner agencies and mobile markets. The Warehouse crew picks up and distributes food safely throughout eastern Riverside and south San Bernardino counties.
FIND distributes food across 5,000 Sq mile service area
Partner agencies serve food in a variety of ways depending on the needs of their clients. At least 75% of our food supply is distributed to our partner soup kitchens, shelters, and food pantries and mobile food distribution.
