 "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

"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
