Quick Overview: We are working to fight hunger and food waste in Southern California, and we'd love to have you join us.
Mission or Broader Program Description: Food Forward fights hunger and prevents food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.
Impact: You will be collecting beautiful fresh fruit that would otherwise get thrown away, and donating 100% to local food banks, pantries, and shelters.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Volunteers help us pick fruit from trees and pack it into boxes to be donated. Volunteers should be comfortable picking fruit and carrying boxes of fruit. Wear comfortable work clothing and close-toed shoes, and bring water to drink.
Requirements: Volunteers must be at least 5 years old, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
* Any volunteer under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian a Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. The form can be found on L.A. Works website Q&A section.
**All volunteers must register through the Food Forward website. Sign up here: www.foodforward.org/volunteer.**
