Volunteer with Food Forward

Fighting food insecurity in Southern California begins with each of us—and each of us can make a difference. Volunteers are the heart of our organization, and we’re thrilled that you want to join us in our mission to end food waste and bring fresh fruits and vegetables to people in our communities.

Our volunteers are a-maize-ing!

Volunteers harvest fruit in their neighborhoods, collect surplus produce from local farmers markets, and support our work in many creative ways. Visit our blog to learn what motivates them to be involved in our mission!
