DIY Feature


All that is required to pick your own fruit is a little elbow grease!

If you have surplus fruit or vegetables growing on your property that you cannot eat but are able to pick yourself, Food Forward can connect you with a nearby hunger relief agency. Your hard work to grow and harvest fresh produce can directly impact those in need in your community.

There is no special equipment required, although we are happy to provide you with fruit pickers or boxes if necessary. You can view a step-by-step guide in our DIY Harvest Instructions document.
