 "We had a very rewarding morning with Food Forward. The volunteer coordinator, Marie, was easy to work with, flexible, and very responsive, and provided us with an excellent property in Northridge that fit both our needs and our volunteer count. We loved the program [and] would absolutely do Food Forward again as a group."
-Birthright Israel NEXT LA (Group Pick Client)

"Having Food Forward harvest my lemon tree made giving to my community both easy and meaningful. They handled everything: the harvesting, the clean up and the delivery of the fruit. I was astounded by the amount of fruit my one little tree yielded and was so gratified to know it would not go to waste but provide fresh fruit to those who would otherwise go without."
-Abby, Los Angeles


"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
