Volunteering at a Food Forward event with friends, family and co-workers is a fruitful way to spend a day! Depending on the size of your group and your location, we have many options to get involved as a team.

Please note: We do our best to accommodate group requests. Our public fruit picking events are scheduled when fruit is ripe and a volunteer Event Leader is available. Most large harvests (10+ volunteers) take place from March – June on weekends in the San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley and in Ventura County. If you have a budget for a team-building volunteer activity for your group, please visit our Private Pick page.
