HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Volunteers power our food recovery work
Your surplus fruit goes to people experiencing food insecurity

For every dollar donated, we recover 10 pounds of produce

We are creating a future where everyone has access to healthy produce.

Donate surplus fruit!

Our volunteers are ready to harvest your fruit trees in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Food Forward turns 12

As we celebrate our twelfth anniversary, our Founder/CEO Rick Nahmias reflects on the journey.
