Please respect the time commitment you make:

Volunteer participation is crucial to the success of our organization. When volunteers do not show up, not only does it prevent somebody who wants to volunteer from doing so, it ultimately diminishes the amount of fruit that is harvested for the hungry. If for any reason you are not able to attend the pick that you signed up for, please contact the pick leader or Marie at or Carl at 818-554-8696.  The experience of your participation is very important to us. Please give us any ideas on how we may improve.

Great News!!!  Food Forward is now officially a non-profit 501(c)(3). Your monetary or equipment donations are greatly appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you at a pick very soon!
