Join us for our 4th annual Ventura County Branch Out on Sunday, November 10th!



The Branch Out began as an event to “branch out” throughout Ventura County to grow deeper relationships with our farmers, backyard fruit donors, volunteers, and agency partners, and to celebrate the work of Food Forward while inspiring others to join us. Now in its 4th year, this Branch Out promises more of the same: good food, good brews, and good times as we celebrate another successful year of rescuing and donating surplus produce across Ventura.

This year, Topa Topa Brewing Co. has generously offered to host us at their soon-to-be opened space on Colt Street!

November 10, 2019 from 1 to 4 PM
Topa Topa Brewing Co., 4880 Colt Street, Ventura, CA 93003
Free Admission, with Beer and Food for Sale!



Depending on the weather, we’ll either be outside in the beer garden or inside in the brewery itself. Topa Topa will be slinging amazing brews all afternoon and donating a portion of sales back to Food Forward! We’ll have live music playing good tunes and delicious food for purchase from one of Ventura’s finest food trucks. Plus, we’ll be bringing back our exciting raffle that’s made possible by our generous Ventura County sponsors and throwing in a silent auction to boot.

Be sure to RSVP via Eventbrite so that we know you’re coming. Like always, the Branch Out is family-friendly. If you have any questions or to become a sponsor, please contact Alia Haddad, Events and Partnerships Manager, at or (818) 764-1022 ext. 111.
