``I have been a volunteer with Food Finders for 4+ years. The experience of meeting the food donors and agencies is humbling and rewarding. I am ever so amazed at how many millions of pounds of food are diverted from landfills and instead feed humans.``

``To be able to donate food that would have gone to waste aligns with why we opened GROW- to feed our neighborhood. Food Finders enables GROW to reach further``

OUR FOOD RESCUE PROGRAM IN ACTION
Take a deeper dive into our organization to learn how Food Finders started rescuing food and reducing hunger with only one dedicated founder, a few volunteers, and a few thousand pounds of donated food.
Since 1989 Food Finders has been rescuing donated food across Southern California with a mission to reduce food insecurity while preventing wholesome food from filling landfills. Food is immediately redistributed to a network of nonprofit partner agencies to help feed individuals in need. We achieve this by staying true our core values: Community, Responsibility, Adaptability, and Integrity.
