Our Backyard Harvesting program is our core program, conducting 100% volunteer-powered picks at public and private properties throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, as well as occasional harvest in Santa Barbara County. All harvested food is immediately donated to non-profit agencies serving members of our community that are considered food-insecure or hungry. Learn more about our Receiving Agencies.
"Food Forward is a great organization where you can immediately see the ‘fruits’ of your labor…such an important cause and so worthwhile in every way."- Deborah, Volunteer
