We are very grateful to Food Finders for supporting our food pantry programs. They provide high quality donated food items. They have been providing food, including turkeys for thanksgiving, to our agency for almost 10 years! We are grateful for their partnership and our clients are grateful for the food!

We are so fortunate to be in partnership with Food Finders. We have been receiving food from their sources for years and they never disappoint. The addition of pick ups of left over school lunches has been very beneficial and they do their best to help us provide holiday meals to our homeless friends and low income families. The people who work there are always kind and generous. They make the operation of our ministry so much easier.

As a person whom has worked for several years in the operations of a Food Bank within the greater Long Beach and Orange County Food Bank circuit, I can say with authority that no other contributor of repurposed food stuffs comes close in the magnitude of help given weekly to food banks of all shapes and sizes within these districts. Born from a vision started in a homeowner's garage some years ago into a multi-million yearly pound saver of foods destined for waste, Food Finders is the beginning of a revolutionary movement underway in our country to redistribute unsold foods to those in genuine need and those living below the poverty line. Please join myself and countless others involved in the movement and make a contribution to one of the most worthy grass-roots causes to emerge in many decades.

We serve 70-75 persons struggling with homelessness twice a week and we couldn't do it without the connections made through Food Finders. Food Finders helps us feed the hungry!

I am a social worker who serves over 200 extremely low income older adults in senior housing in Long Beach. Many of them can not afford fresh fruits and vegetables. Thanks to Food Finders they are now able to eat fresh food every week. Thank you Food Finders!

Diana and her team at Food Finders are remarkable! We called and informed that we were short of items for our distribution and they provided 2 generous donations on the morning of our Food Distribution. We are so grateful for Food Finders and their commitment to assisting our Food Ministry here in Long Beach. Words cannot express our thanks and may God continue to bless and watch over their organization. In addition, they make the additional effort to come by on the weekends and offer our Church fresh produce from our local Farmers Market! They care so much about our community and we praise them truly for their philanthropic effort.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

E-MARKET THEM TO THE WORLD!

We have a large home garden, with one 32 square foot bed that's dedicated to growing food for charity. We are happy to donate to Food Finders, who love getting 40 heads of fresh lettuce or a bushel of peppers from us. They keep overhead low so almost all of their donations go directly to those in need. They service a large number of agencies in the Long Beach area. Well done!
