We’re so ex-cidered to kick off our Birthday Campaign! Not to get saucy, but we are turning 32 and hope you’ll celebrate our hunger relief efforts by donating. This year we’ve set our sights on raising $50,000 for our food rescue program. Help us hit our fundraising goal allowing us to continue our COVID-19 response, food rescue program, food 4 kids program, and other resources we provide to the community. The donation campaign kicks off on April 1st, 2021, and will run till April 30th.
How can you get involved in this campaign? There are a few ways.
Visit our Fundraising page which will be linked here come April 1st and make a monetary donation towards our $50,000 goal which will help us offset purchases of emergency non-perishable food, keep our trucks on the road delivering food daily, and support our staff working tirelessly to bridge the food gap.
Start a fundraiser of your own by visiting our crowdfunding pagehere and rally your network to raise funds for our program. Customize your page, set your own goal, and receive your own shareable link. This is a free way to support our April campaign and take 5 minutes to set up.
Share our fundraising page on your social media channels to help us spread awareness about our campaign goal. The more people talking about our fundraiser, the better chance we have to raise an impactful amount of money for our community efforts.
Why is this campaign important?
One in seven people is currently struggling with food insecurity in California, yet enough food is produced to feed every person in this state. Donations from this campaign ensure we can support our network of partner agencies that use the donated food to feed people in need across Southern California. Our goal for 2021 is to rescue 16 million pounds of wholesome food—that’s enough for 13 million meals! That’s also millions of pounds of greenhouse gases eliminated and tons of resources saved as a result of feeding people, not landfills.
We’re about to peel out on this campaign on April 1st – please share with friends and family, because it takes a bushel of support to make our program successful!
Bonus Note: We will be doing weekly opportunity drawings throughout the month – anyone who donates could win!
Your support of Food Finders provides more than just food- it provides time spent cooking together, reconnecting with friends or family, creating a long-lasting memory, tradition and much more. Make a donation this December and provide someone in need with #MoreThanJustFood.
