Long Beach Gives Sept 22, 2022: Benefitting the Food Hub
September 22, 2022
4th ANNUAL LONG BEACH GIVES EVENT
Long Beach Gives is our city’s annual online giving event that provides an easy and fun way for our entire city to give together. It also allows Long Beach nonprofits to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors.
Food Finders is dedicating 2022 to help fund the Food Hub Program.
A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food. This happens when grocery stores decide to close up in neighborhoods that don’t produce the profit they would like.
Food Finders started its Food Hub Program in 2021. Placing a refrigerated container in Admiral Kidd Park in Long Beach.
We have plans to create more food hubs wherever nutritious foods are needed to nourish food insecure communities.
Our mission is to eliminate hunger and food waste while improving nutrition in food-insecure communities. This Long Beach Gives campaign helps our two new Food Hubs get one step closer to our goal of a perishable food drop-off location in West and North Long Beach! Storage for perishable food benefits the community by allowing them to receive items like meat, poultry, and dairy products during food distribution.
Support us this Long Beach Gives and help us reach our goal of $10,000
Early giving starts September 15th
