 "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 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)


"I purchased a home last fall that was built in the 1950’s and the fruit trees are mature and produce lots of fruit. I asked myself, “What am I going to do with this fruit?”, and a friend suggested I get a hold of Food Forward. It was easy! I emailed the office, they got back to me requesting location and a photo of the trees. A day was scheduled and arrangements were made. A great group of Food Forward volunteers came to my house, picked the fruit and no mess was left behind."
