About the Organization

Founded in 1983 in Cathedral City, California, Food in Need of Distribution, Inc. (FIND) was established to feed hungry people in the Coachella Valley. In the 34+ years since our founding, FIND has grown in scope and resources, including a move to a 36,000-sq-ft facility that includes our warehouse operations and administrative offices. We have a staff of 28 full- and part-time employees and more than 4,500 volunteers who committed 15,551 hours of service in fiscal year 2016-17. Operating Budget of 3.2 million. As Coachella Valley's regional food bank, FIND partners with more than 100 social-service and community-based agencies throughout eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino Counties to provide emergency and supplemental food assistance, outreach programming, and case management for residents across our service area. As food-insecurity levels persist, FIND expects to distribute more than 10 million pounds of food assistance in 2017; of that total, 5+ million pounds will be in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables, as FIND and our local stakeholders reinforce our commitment to health food banking.
