Ready to donate food? Let’s get started!

Food Finders accepts donations of both perishable and nonperishable food, which then gets distributed to our nonprofit partners, including pantries, shelters and missions. Anything from a single tray of sandwiches or a few canned items to large pallets of food can be donated. In general, all food is kept within the local community from where it was donated. We also accept hygiene items, pet food, and baby food.

If you are a food business—grocer, market, distributor, restaurant, corporate cafeteria, school or other food vendor—and would like to donate, we are happy to be a resource! Your donation can help reduce hunger immediately. For details on getting started, please contact Chris Wong at 562-283-1400 x 105 or email If you have questions or concerns about food safety and donation procedures, learn more from our Food Donation FAQ.

If you’re an individual with food, backyard produce or other items to donate, you may drop off at our office during normal business hours, M-F 8:30 am-5 pm, and we will be happy to provide a tax receipt for your donation. Our address is: 10539 Humbolt St., Los Alamitos CA 90720.

Hosting A Food Drive

Hunger happens all year round, so food drives are a great way to give back as part of a neighborhood event, a community service project, or even in lieu of receiving birthday gifts. If you would like to host a Food Drive, we have collection bins available and a list of preferred items. Please contact us to have a bin dropped off or picked up.

We only accept food that is properly contained and deemed safe for consumption. Canned and packaged items that are 6 months past their expiration dates will not be accepted.

For After Hours Food Donations, please text or call (562) 233-3247.
