 "My wife and I came upon Food Forward after purchasing our new home in Sherman Oaks. We absolutely love the 12 fruit baring trees on our new property but quickly realized we had so much delicious fruit that would go to waste. Food Forward came by to assess the property and scheduled a time to harvest. The organizer, Rick, was kind, courteous, and incredibly respectful of our property. The volunteers were warm, friendly, and worked hard. It was only a few hours, but a great experience that I will continue to be a part of and hopefully, next time, get to help out. It was a great experience that I recommend to everyone with fruit trees."

"On every Food Forward pick there is a moment when I pause for a moment in the midst of picking and I smell the air, and feel the sunlight on my skin. I look around and see a group of people working peacefully together, all doing something just because it is good. Being happy sometimes is as simple as this."
