Save to Favorites


  • 3 people are interested

Harvest food, fight hunger, build community! We will be harvesting beautiful lemons that would otherwise go to waste, and donating 100% to local hunger relief agencies. Join the Volunteer Team to help us pick as much fruit as possible from trees, and pack it into boxes to be donated.

Volunteers should be comfortable picking fruit and carrying boxes that weigh up to 20 pounds, but don’t need to worry about bringing equipment or transporting the fruit. This opportunity is open to volunteers 5 years old and older, though children under 16 years old must come with a parent or guardian who registers for and volunteers at the event, too.

**In order to attend this event, each person (children included) MUST REGISTER on our volunteer calendar here:**

Simply find the date of this event, then the name, and click on it to register.

Volunteers must read our Health and COVID-19 Policy here:

About Food Forward

Mission Statement

Food Forward fights hunger and prevents food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.


Food Forward’s mission is to fight hunger and prevent food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same. We rescue fruits and vegetables from backyard fruit trees, orchards, farmers markets, and the downtown Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market. In the last 9 years, Food Forward’s programs have rescued over 50 million pounds (more than 200 million servings) of fresh produce, preventing nearly 19,000 metric tons of carbon equivalent from polluting the atmosphere. With a small staff, hundreds of community partners, and the power of 7,000+ volunteers, we will help over 1.75 million Southern Californians experiencing food insecurity this year.
