Food Forward

North Hollywood, CA

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. Produce is collected from backyards and public spaces, 17 weekly farmers markets, and the Downtown Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market. In the last six years, its mostly volunteer-powered recovery events have collected over 14 million pounds (56 million servings) of fresh fruits and vegetables, helping feed people in need in Los Angeles and five surrounding counties.
