Food Forward



Food Forward is a volunteer powered grassroots group of Angelenos who care about reconnecting to our food system and making change around urban hunger.

Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.


We convene at properties we have been invited to and harvest their excess fruits and vegetables, donating 100% to local food pantries across southern California. Combined, our numerous distribution partners provide food to over 40,000 clients a month across Southern California.

Since forming in 2009, we have harvested hundreds of properties with 100% of what we pick going to feed the hungry.
