 "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 behalf of the Studio City Farmers Market, I just want to add that the Food Forward Farmers Market Program is seamless. Once we introduced the program to the farmers the volunteers took over and there have never been any issues. The volunteers do all the work, they are professional and courteous and quick. It is truly a program that benefits many, including the farmers, who are happy to get their receipts for the tax write-off. "
Esther Walker, Executive Director Studio City Farmers Market


"I really didnt expect fruit picking to be so fun, but It was! Its hard not to feel the stress of the day melt away as you laugh about getting bopped on the head by a small citrus fruit, or feeling satisfied climbing high into a tree to pick the freshest grapefruit for someone in need! "
Cob Burton
