 " I choose to volunteer with FF because it gives me the ability to help the community while enjoying the outdoors. The feeling of getting my hands dirty and putting fruit in crates knowing it will help people in need, is second to none!"
Ross Zelen

"I really didnt expect fruit picking to be so fun, but It was! Its hard not to feel the stress of the day melt away as you laugh about getting bopped on the head by a small citrus fruit, or feeling satisfied climbing high into a tree to pick the freshest grapefruit for someone in need! "
Cob Burton


"We were thrilled to have a great group of Food Forward volunteers show up at our home and harvest our citrus trees. You guys did a great job with a fantastic attitude, and look forward to having you back for the fall harvest!"
Amanda 3/3/11
