 "I don\'t even really realize how much food goes to waste in just one yard! You all were just wonderful and I will be totally letting you know when we are ready for more picking. Thank you and your wonderful crew for allowing us to \"Pay it Forward\"."
Milissa and Angela

"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)


"The experience was so awesome! Your team rocks! Jack was so helpful as team leader. Lara and Jack both spoke highly of Food Forward because it is so organized. It was such a pleasure to hear the feedback from Food Not Bombs contact. He really appreciates this being streamlined through Food Forward. It was really great to see how the produce boxes were distributed with care and detail, tailored to the specific needs and quantities for each group picking up. When the pick ups happened, the drivers were very happy that they did not need to wait for their boxes to be weighed in, but rather just loaded them up and were on their way."
Beth, Farmers Market Recovery
