 "My wife and I came upon Food Forward after purchasing our new home in Sherman Oaks. We absolutely love the 12 fruit baring trees on our new property but quickly realized we had so much delicious fruit that would go to waste. Food Forward came by to assess the property and scheduled a time to harvest. The organizer, Rick, was kind, courteous, and incredibly respectful of our property. The volunteers were warm, friendly, and worked hard. It was only a few hours, but a great experience that I will continue to be a part of and hopefully, next time, get to help out. It was a great experience that I recommend to everyone with fruit trees."
Todd 3/1/11

"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


"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."
