Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.

HARVEST FOOD • FIGHT HUNGER • BUILD COMMUNITY

We are a volunteer-powered, grassroots group of Southern Californians who are passionate about reconnecting to our food system, promoting issues of food justice, and making change around hunger in our community.

We convene at private properties, public spaces, and farmers and wholesale markets to recover excess fruits and vegetables, donating 100% to local direct-service agencies who feed our community’s most vulnerable. Combined, our diverse distribution partners provide food to over 100,000 clients a month across Southern California.

 "After a day of volunteering with Food Forward, I feel like I have paid for a day of my keep on this earth in a tangible (not to mention fun and sweaty) way. I have taken something that would otherwise fall to the ground and be wasted and put that into grateful hands and mouths."
Tran (Pick Leader)
