 " On behalf of the Studio City Farmers Market, I just want to add that the Food Forward Farmers Market Program is seamless. Once we introduced the program to the farmers the volunteers took over and there have never been any issues. The volunteers do all the work, they are professional and courteous and quick. It is truly a program that benefits many, including the farmers, who are happy to get their receipts for the tax write-off. "
Esther Walker, Executive Director Studio City Farmers Market

"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

 


"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!"
