Long Beach Gives Sept 22, 2022: Benefitting the Food Hub

4th ANNUAL LONG BEACH GIVES EVENT
ONE DAY OF GIVING SEPTEMBER 22, 2022
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.
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

Food Hub in Long Beach Opens

How do you find fresh fruits and vegetables in a “food desert”?

  1. “an urban area in which it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food.”

The solution is that Food Finders raises the necessary funds to put a Food Hub in a community that needs fresh produce to eat more nutritious meals.

Saturday, April 30th our first Food Hub in Long Beach had its grand opening. We are excited and proud to partner with so many wonderful community partners to make this happen
