Spring Melt


Thank You for Melting With Us!

We appreciate your incredible support and had so much fun Melting with you on April 9th!

Food Forward’s Spring Melt, our signature annual fundraiser, brought delicious foods, craft cocktails, and a passionate community together to celebrate another successful year of fighting hunger and food waste. Friends of Food Forward gathered under the stars to taste scrumptious delectables, bid on unique auction items, and learn more about the mission we accomplish together. 

This year, Food Forward will reach the milestone of 250 MILLION POUNDS of fresh fruits and vegetables distributed to communities across the region. That’s the equivalent of one billion servings of fresh food!

Thank you to our amazing chef and beverage partners for making this year’s Spring Melt so delicious!
