Summer to End Hunger Food Drive 2024

June 1 - August 31

During the summer months, many families face a daunting challenge: the absence of subsidized meals that they rely on during the school year. For them, hunger becomes a harsh reality when access to these vital resources disappears. According to recent research, an estimated 22 million children experience hunger during the summer months, which is about 1 in 5 children.

Food Finders is on a mission to make a difference with the launch of our annual Summer to End Hunger Food Drive. Through this initiative, we aim to alleviate food insecurity by collecting non perishable items, school supplies, and hygiene products at bins located in public libraries across Long Beach. You can make a difference in our food-insecure communities by donating items to our Summer to End Hunger Food Drive.

Ways to Donate:
– Drop your food and hygiene donations in one of Food Finders collection bins located in public libraries throughout Long Beach.
– We have also partnered with Compound Long Beach to extend the reach of our food drive, targeting underserved neighborhoods like the Zaferia area of Long Beach, which has been designated as a food desert by the USDA’s Economic Research Service.
-Compound Long Beach will have Food Finders bins available for donations during their Union @ Compound restaurant service hours.
– Host a Summer to End Hunger Food Drive of your own. You can email Mark Eden at meden@foodfinders.org for more information.
– If you are unable to drop items off at one of our bins, please consider making a monetary donation to our Summer to End Hunger Program by clicking the link below or scanning the QR code.
