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.

The church I attend has a hot meal program, sack lunch, program, shower program, and a food pantry. Food Finders brings us bread and baked goods each week which helps with all of these programs. Our food pantry gets enough to serve sweets with coffee while people wait in line, sometimes for hours. The hot meal program, served two Saturdays a month gets enough bread to serve with our lunch and to give loaves & buns away as people leave.

The products are so appreciated and helps us keep our costs down and provide more for the people we serve.

The Great!

It would be helpful to know in advance what was coming, so that I wouldn't have to purchase bread for my program if I was going to get a delivery.

I am the Vice-President for the Long Beach Basket Brigade. We are a local agency that has had the priviledge to work with Food Finders for the past 7 years. They have been crucial in identifying hundreds of Long Beach families in need of food and assisting us in our mission to serve them. This past year Food Finders assisted us in feeding 826 Long Beach families in need. They are a tremendous value to our community and deserve any financial assistance available. They are a true example of service and action!

The Great!

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.

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!)
