Where:  Mcbride High School, 7025 Parkcrest Street, Long Beach, CA 9080

Date: November 18 & 19, 2023

Our Annual Holiday Food Drive has returned for yet another holiday season of generosity. Each year, Food Finders diligently gathers turkeys and select items, organizing and packaging them into holiday boxes. Subsequently, these boxes are generously contributed to our network of partner agencies for distribution within their respective communities. This year, our goal is to assemble 3,000 boxes to support the Southern California community, maximizing our impact on as many families and communities as possible.

We are deeply grateful to our remarkable community, and we regret to inform you that we are no longer accepting volunteer applications for this event at the present time. All available slots for our 2023 sorting and packing sessions have been filled. If you represent a partner agency and wish to request holiday boxes, we invite you to visit our website at and complete the Thanksgiving Donation Request form located at the bottom of the page.

Holiday Food Drive Food Finders Oct to Dec

Annual Holiday Food Drive October 1st to December 31st

Helping families in need during the holidays

There are many ways you can make a difference for families struggling with hunger this holiday season.

 Food Finders collects food from October through December, feeding thousands of families in need right here in Southern California.  We are collecting food items to help families feed their children and enjoy some of the pleasure of the holiday season that come during the winter months.

Our annual Holiday Food Drive starts October 1st – December 31st, and Food Finders needs your support to collect as much food as possible for our nonprofit partners during the holidays. This year Food Finders is setting out to ensure everyone has a chance to create an experience around the table for the holidays. According to the California Food Policy Advocates, “4.7 million adults and 2.0 million children live in households affected by food insecurity”. Right now, you can register to become a food drive participant by signing up using our easy form below to help reduce food insecurity for a family in Southern California.

Rally your coworkers, get your boy scout or girl scout troop involved or inspire your school classroom to start a food drive to help your local community make this holiday season a hunger-free one! See below for a list of items we’re collecting:



Monetary support over the holidays ensures we can continue our programs through December and into 2023:
