Food Finders rescues excess food and takes it to where it is needed. It is directly delivered to children's homes, family shelters, missions, homes for unwed mothers, battered women and children, rehabilitation centers, senior centers, boys & girls clubs, youth programs, church food ministries and others. This helps solve the hunger problem and stops food waste as well as draws people into programs where they can get what they need to build a better future- such as basic life skills, english second language classes, parenting skills, job skills. Through providing food, referrals for resources, and networking Food Finders helps build a better community for all.

The Great!

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

I've seen the difference it has made in many lives. People, fed, given hope and resources for building a whole new life.

Ways to make it better...

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

Hope for more resources to be donated to the organization so we can do even more for the community. We have the infrastructure to do more, but are limited by the lack of sufficient resources.

The Drop-In-Center (a program of Urban Community Outreach of Long Beach, CA) offers a safe and appropriate place "out of the glare" every Sunday afternoon for up to over 500 homeless and needy people downtown. I used to spend time on Saturday seeking food donations from the vendors at a local Certified Farmers Market and could collect 40 or 50 pounds of produce every week. Food Finders heard I was doing that and before I knew it there were 2 or 3 teams of their volunteers picking up 80-100 pounds of potatoes, carrots, oranges, lettuce and other wholesome fresh produce the farmers generously offered. Not only that, but those same Food Finders folks would then show up the next day to volunteer with us at the Drop-In-Center. I am so happy to be on the receiving end of some of Food Finders' 80 million pounds of food deliveries.

The Great!

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

changing lives by helping people stretch their food budget...or perhaps get their only meal that day.

Ways to make it better...

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

boost the effectiveness of its board for stronger fundraising efforts...Food Finders always operates on a shoestring. (or, better-said, on a shoestring potato!)

Food Finders has become the "go to" organization whenever a nonprofit organization has an event on behalf of its clients and has budget concerns. I know that they've been crucial in making connections between businesses that have excess food to contribute and our downtown Sunday Drop-In Center for the Homeless at the First Congregational Church. They serve scores of such organizations each month.

The Great!

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

A forum on homelessness involving members of the police department and members of the homeless community.

Ways to make it better...

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

give it lots of money.
