For 35 years FIND Food Bank’s mission has been to fight food insecurity and hunger by providing much-needed food resources. This all began in 1983, when FIND’s founder, Wayne Robinson, started distributing food out of the back of his blue Pinto when he saw that his neighbors were in need. This new enterprise was named Food in Need of Distribution (FIND). It was established to feed hungry children, seniors, and adults throughout the Desert. Today, FIND has evolved from a small fellowship of like-minded individuals into the Desert’s Regional Food Bank, providing not only healthy, nutritious food assistance but also outreach services to help low-income households build sustainability and self-sufficiency.
