Private Picks

Private Picks

Make a direct impact on your community! Private Picks are custom-built backyard harvests that offer your team a hands-on approach to fighting food waste and supporting those in need.

You choose the date, time, and area* for your team-building experience, and we’ll create a custom event for between 5 to 50 people.

The minimum contribution per Private Pick is $1450 for the first 15 people (plus $20 for each additional person) and directly supports Food Forward’s mission to harvest food, fight hunger, and build community in Southern California.

Private Picks include:

✓ Food Forward staff to lead your harvest
✓ Refreshments, harvest equipment, and insurance
✓ Special Food Forward gift for each participant
✓ Knowing that community members in need
will receive 100% of the fruit you pick!



* Please note: factors such as seasonality, fruit ripeness, and other harvest conditions can impact Food Forward’s ability to secure properties in your desired region and time frame. Although we make every effort to accommodate your preferences, Private Picks for 16 or more participants are only scheduled January through October, and require travel to larger properties located in beautiful Ventura County.
