Reviews for Food Finders Inc

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

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!

My husband and I have been volunteering for Food Finders since it started 0ver 20 years ago. We started out picking up food once a week and are now picking up food 7 days a week ( twice on Sundays ). We deliver directly to the agencies in need. At the present time we deliver food to 7 different agencies. Food Finders was a grass roots effort by one women that has grown over the years. I believe that Food Finders have delivered over 20 million pounds of food to the needy over the years. We have served on the Board of Directors for over 7 years and are passionate about the mission of Food Finders.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

We were volunteers before we became members of the board. We have been a part of food finders for 20 years, ever since it was started as a grass roots organization. We now pick up food and deliver every day of the week Yes!! that is 7 days. It is part of our morning rutine and we never miss. The work food finders does for others is fnatastic

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the satisfaction I see and feel with seeing how much the food is appreciated and needed

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

encourage more people to volunteer their services and time. That way we could serve more people

Not only does Food Finders rescue food and get it to agencies that feed people, they also will send people who call Food Finders to partnering agencies so they can get other help that they may be needed. Food Finders takes food to a variety of agencies too.

Each week I rescue about 100 lbs of cooked food from he Westin Hotel Long Beach for the benefit of the 200-300 who take part in the Drop In Center program at the Congregational Chuuch. Direct hands on to those in need by volunteers who care in a great interagency effort.

By picking up and delivering food that would otherwise be tossed.
