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.

 "On every Food Forward pick there is a moment when I pause for a moment in the midst of picking and I smell the air, and feel the sunlight on my skin. I look around and see a group of people working peacefully together, all doing something just because it is good. Being happy sometimes is as simple as this."
