Food Forward’s mission is to reconnect the community with the abundance of food present in our everyday lives, while creating change around issues of urban hunger, food waste and food justice. We engage volunteers to harvest locally grown food from private homes and public spaces which is then distributed to local food pantries and organizations serving those in need.
Program Description: Join Food Forward at the West Hollywood Farmers Market on Mondays from 1:15 pm to 2:30 pm. We collect donations of fresh produce from farmers and help box, carry, sort, and weigh the produce. 100% of the food we collect is donated to local food banks, pantries, and other service agencies.
