RSVP for a Special Weekend Pick and Our Volunteer Meet N’ Greet

Hello Food Forward Volunteers!

We at Food Forward hope that all of you have had a great 4th of July weekend!

So far, July has been a fantastic month for volunteer participation- almost every pick is full! We were just offered a multi-tree property for this Sunday’s pick (July 11th)  and need an extra 25 volunteers in addition to those who have already signed up. This Sylmar pick promises to be a fun one; the trees are a great height, easy to pick and fit for anyone over 12 years old (though we do ask that all minors come with a parent or guardian). Pick details:
