FIND Food Bank Begins Twice Monthly Free Mobile Food Pantry
Distribution for Struggling Palm Springs Area Residents
Struggling residents in need of food assistance will now have the opportunity to get fresh food twice a month at a free mobile pantry that will kick off April 2 in the Palm Springs area thanks to a partnership with FIND Food Bank of the Coachella Valley, the desert’s regional food bank.
The convenient drive through “Rapid Response Pantry” will operate from 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month in the parking lot across from the Palm Springs Convention Center, located on the corner of Avenida Caballeros and Amado Road.
FIND Food Bank is the Desert’s Regional Food Bank serving eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino Counties in southern California, from the High Desert and Joshua Tree across the Coachella Valley, down to the Salton Sea. Our mission is to relieve hunger, the causes of hunger, and the problems associated with hunger through awareness, education, and mobilization of resources and community involvement.
As the only Feeding America member food bank in our vast 5,000 square mile service area, we partner with 140+ community agencies – including food pantries, soup kitchens, after school and summer care, senior centers, faith-based organizations, and homeless shelters – to distribute 10+ million pounds of food assistance annually to an estimated 85,000 individuals, seniors, children, families and veterans each and every month.
