Food Forward is a volunteer powered grassroots group of Angelenos who care about reconnecting to our food system and making change around urban hunger.
HARVEST FOOD • FIGHT HUNGER • BUILD COMMUNITY
We convene at properties we have been invited to and harvest their excess fruits and vegetables, donating 100% to local food pantries across southern California. Combined, our numerous distribution partners provide food to over 40,000 clients a month across Southern California.
Since forming in 2009, we have harvested hundreds of properties with 100% of what we pick going to feed the hungry. To see our total harvested poundage to date, see the counter on the home page!

|"My wife and I came upon Food Forward after purchasing our new home in Sherman Oaks. We absolutely love the 12 fruit baring trees on our new property but quickly realized we had so much delicious fruit that would go to waste. Food Forward came by to assess the property and scheduled a time to harvest. The organizer, Rick, was kind, courteous, and incredibly respectful of our property. The volunteers were warm, friendly, and worked hard. It was only a few hours, but a great experience that I will continue to be a part of and hopefully, next time, get to help out. It was a great experience that I recommend to everyone with fruit trees."|
