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, but cannot guarantee placement due to size, location, and schedule limitations. Our public fruit picking events are scheduled when fruit is in season and a volunteer Event Leader is available. Most large harvests that can accommodate more than 10 volunteers take place from March – June on the weekends in the San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, and in Ventura County.
