FIND Food Bank has been working closely with County Supervisor Manny Perez’s office and Riverside County Dept. of Public Health to ensure that there is unity with all agencies to support our community with food assistance at this time.  We understand that many in our community are being hit hard with the economic impact Coronavirus has caused for many people in our Desert.  We are here for you and understand.

PLEASE NOTE:  All of our sites are practicing Social Distancing and Face Covering techniques as required by the Riverside County Public Health Department.  Please make sure to abide by the site’s policies when you arrive to ensure that everyone has the ability to receive food quickly and with the safety precautions our County and State public health officials are requiring. These include:

  • All Clients are required to wear a face covering when going to a Food Distribution site, including drive thru food distributions.
  • When standing in line to receive food provide at least 2 arms length of space between the person in front of you and behind you.
  • For our senior specific sites serving only 65 and older clients, you will need to how proof of age to be admitted to the site to receive food.
  • Wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitizers prior to coming to the site and at the site if you have hand sanitizer with you.
  • Only 1 person from the household should attend the site to pick up food for your family. Please leave other members in the parking lot to wait for you when you come away from the food area.  They can  meet you then to help.
  • Leave children at home. Only bring children to the food site if you have no other child care options.
  • Step away from the line or outside if you need to cough or sneeze. Use your elbow to shield your face.
  • STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SHOWING ANY OF THESE SIGNS: Coughing, sneezing and running a fever.  You are able to have someone pick up food for you on your behalf and deliver it to you.

10th Annual TELETHON, April 3, 2020

FIND Food Bank needs your help.

The Coronavirus economic impact has taken a huge toll on our low income populations. This population is now growing with every requirement that employers must make including lay offs, severe cuts to employment hours, and hours of operations.  FIND projects serving now over 125,000 children, families, individuals and seniors every month who are in fear of where their next meal will come from. This is over a 35% increase just 2 weeks. Our clients are being forced to make choices between paying for their rent, medical bills or food.  FIND helps them not have to decide by providing them with food for free. We can only do this if we have your help.

Watch our Telethon (pre-taped footage and streamed video)  help us raise the much needed dollars to support all those affected by COVID-19’s impact on the community. We need your donations now more than ever!
