Community Service Opportunities at Food Forward

10.27.17 – Fall is the perfect season to start looking into places to do community service. Schools are getting started, the holidays are coming up, and it’s the right time to start planning your resolutions for the coming year. While we look for volunteers to come out and join us all year round, and have community service opportunities nearly every day of the year, now is definitely a great time to get started!

What is Community Service?

Community service is exactly what it sounds like: serving your community! There are so many reasons that people volunteer their time to serve their own and neighboring communities.

Whether you’re completing required volunteer hours, have some spare time, or just want to give back, everyone is welcome to volunteer. We make it easy for you to sign up and come out, and if you need proof of community service, we’re more than happy to verify the time you spend volunteering with us.

Where can I complete Community Service with Food Forward?

All over Southern California! You can complete community service hours at any of our food recovery events in Los Angeles or Ventura counties. We have events at different locations nearly every day of the week.

Our volunteers are out at over 20 farmers markets every week, and depending on the season, many fruit and produce harvests as well. To see all of our upcoming volunteer opportunities, check out our volunteer calendar.

How to confirm my volunteer hours?

It’s easy! Sign up for as few or as many events as you’d like on our volunteer calendar. Once you complete your required hours, send us an email at volunteer@foodforward.org. Let us know that you require proof of your community service, and we’ll send you our official form.

Please give us up to a week to process your volunteer hours form. If you know you’re going to need verification, it’s best to let us know early so that we can get it to you on time!

If you have a different form that you need us to fill out, that’s no problem either! Bring it out to each event you come to, and have your Food Forward Event Leader sign off on the date. If you have any questions, get in touch with us at volunteer@foodforward.org.
