 "We were thrilled to have a great group of Food Forward volunteers show up at our home and harvest our citrus trees. You guys did a great job with a fantastic attitude, and look forward to having you back for the fall harvest!"
Amanda 3/3/11

"After a day of volunteering with Food Forward, I feel like I have paid for a day of my keep on this earth in a tangible (not to mention fun and sweaty) way. I have taken something that would otherwise fall to the ground and be wasted and put that into grateful hands and mouths."
Tran (Pick Leader)


"A few hours of being outside in the sunshine and up in an orange tree makes everything better. Working with Food Forward is an excellent way to redistribute some of these resources in a practical and immediately effective method. It is one of the best ways to meet new people from all walks of life...It is a better workout than anything in a gym!"
Dawn
