FIND Food Bank Welcomes New CEO

Please Help Us welcome Debbie Espinosa, #FINDfood new President & CEO!


“Our Board of Directors is very excited to have a new CEO on board,” said FIND Board Chair Deborah McGarrey. “Her experience with Feeding America and familiarity with food banking will build on our solid foundation and help FIND Food Bank continue to grow in serving the community.” 

For over 20 years, Ms. Espinosa has served as a professional in the nonprofit sector, with seven of those years dedicated to ending hunger locally, nationally, and internationally. Her work in food banking includes serving as the Feeding America Compliance and Capacity Development Manager for the Southwest Sector of the United States. While there, she provided strategic growth and development consulting to the 32 food banks in that region, including FIND Food Bank. She has also served as the Global Foodbanking Network’s Strategic Programs and Operations consultant to the first national food banking networks in Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador in partnership with Walmart Centro America y Mexico. 

FIND's Giving Society

It’s the season of giving, but one local group makes giving a priority 365 days a year. FIND Food Bank’s Giving Society makes monthly donations to stabilize FIND’s budget to make sure they can fund programs like school farmers’ markets over multiple years.

An early morning breakfast at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa brought together current and prospective donors to expand the program.

 “This whole program is about coming together and saying we believe that if we invest in these kids and give them access to healthy fruits and vegetables that they need to grow and thrive, they can break the cycle of poverty. They can go out and get educated, and they can become part of society,” said Lisa Houston, FIND CEO and president.
