About Us

Food In Need of Distribution, Inc. is FIND Food Bank.

We are the only regional food bank serving eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino Counties in southern California.

We distribute 8–9 million pounds of food assistance annually to an average 80,000 individuals each month across our service area.

We do so through a network of 100+ community-based partners whose programs include food pantries, soup kitchens, after-school and summer care, senior centers, faith-based organizations, and homeless shelters.

We are a Member of Feeding America and the California Association of Food Banks.

 

How it Works

FIND Food Bank distributes 8–9 million pounds of food each year.
Of that food, approximately:

  • 3 million pounds are fresh produce
  • 3 million pounds are donated food and fresh rescue
  • 2 million pounds are USDA commodities

 

DONATED & FRESH RESCUE FOOD
Comes from a variety of sources:

  • Local growers
  • Local grocers and warehouse stores
  • Local food drives

  • USDA (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)

Please Note:  All  food is checked for expiration dates, sorted,
and then placed into FIND Food Bank inventory for distribution.
