In honor of the César Chávez holiday, L.A. Works is partnering with Food Forward for a week of activities.

They harvest excess fruits and vegetables from local properties donating 100% to local food pantries across southern California.

Project: Pick excess fruit from trees and lawns. Following the pick, there will be a lively discussion on the themes of food justice.
