 "Whether you find solace in the meditative act of plucking the fruit from trees, or love unwinding from the 9-5 grind by chatting with fellow pickers, Food Forward is a place for everyone. I truly cherish each and every pick for its unique and rewarding experiences. Even in the heart of LA, I have found my locavore sanctuary!"
Elise (Pick Leader)

"On every Food Forward pick there is a moment when I pause for a moment in the midst of picking and I smell the air, and feel the sunlight on my skin. I look around and see a group of people working peacefully together, all doing something just because it is good. Being happy sometimes is as simple as this."
Charles, Volunteer


" 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
