take a seat at the share table

On #Giving Tuesday: November 29th we are asking our supporters to Share Your Holiday Meal at the Food Finder’s ShareTable.
Our monthly giving program, The Share Table, brings families together with the consistent support of our Food Rescue program at Food Finders.

Currently, 1 in 6 Americans is food insecure, yet a third of the food produced goes to waste.

Our Food Rescue Program is a well-orchestrated program with a 33-year history of eliminating food waste & hunger while improving nutrition in the food-insecure communities in Southern California.

We secure healthy greens, vegetables, fruits, meat, and dairy to build a healthy plate through our Food Hub Program.

***But did you know that Food Finders is also an environmentally conscious and sustainable operation? 

Food Rescue reduces methane gas and CO2(e) and saves billions of gallons of water. The more food we rescue and share, the greater our support of a healthy Earth!

We want to do more and reach more people in need.

Our year-end goal is to reach 11.6 million meals, and we are just 2.0 million meals away from our goal!

ONE DAY OF GIVING SEPTEMBER 22, 2022
Long Beach Gives is our city’s annual online giving event that provides an easy and fun way for our entire city to give together. It also allows Long Beach nonprofits to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors.
Food Finders is dedicating 2022 to help fund the Food Hub Program.
food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food. This happens when grocery stores decide to close up in neighborhoods that don’t produce the profit they would like.
Food Finders started its Food Hub Program in 2021.  Placing a refrigerated container in Admiral Kidd Park in Long Beach.
We have plans to create more food hubs wherever nutritious foods are needed to nourish food insecure communities.
Our mission is to eliminate hunger and food waste while improving nutrition in food-insecure communities. This Long Beach Gives campaign helps our two new Food Hubs get one step closer to our goal of a perishable food drop-off location in West and North Long Beach! Storage for perishable food benefits the community by allowing them to receive items like meat, poultry, and dairy products during food distribution.
