*Ideally we are looking for someone based in Los Angeles but will consider developers that are in the United States and who are consistently available by phone and email during PST business hours.
Food Forward’s mission is to reconnect people with people – through food – by bringing together volunteers and neighbors to share in the gleaning and distributing of locally grown food from private homes and public spaces which is then distributed to local food pantries and organizations serving those in need. Since forming in 2009, Food Forward has rescued over 800,000 pounds of produce from hundreds local backyards and orchards. Food Forward is growing by leaps and bounds and is at an exciting point in its development and has become known nationally as an innovator around harvesting food, fighting hunger and building community.
Virtually all of Food Forward’s organizing of its volunteers, properties, donors and partnerships is done online through a very robust website. As we grow into a new phase there are numerous issues we face regarding capacity building, scaling and creating additional branches in other locations.
