With the holidays upon us, FIND Food Bank is in need of donations to help feed families throughout the Desert Region.

As prices at grocery stores continue to rise with inflation, some families might be experiencing more financial stress this time of year.

FIND Food Banks tells News Channel 3 many families seek their services for the first time during the holiday season.

Kayleen Sullivan, Community Relations Manager at FIND Food Banks says, "We're really looking for more donations as we go into this holiday season, because we always see an increase in our lines during the holidays. About 10% is the increase in our food distribution lines. For more people coming to the food bank, we have about 150 distribution sites across the Coachella Valley and High Desert.”

This year FIND Food Bank is moving towards virtual food drives and monetary donations.

FIND Food Bank says buying in bulk will help them feed more families and just $25 alone can provide 100 meals.
