Big Kumquat Harvest in Sierra Madre

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Food Forward

  • 2 people are interested



We are working to fight hunger and food waste in Southern California, and we'd love to have you join us. Volunteers will be harvesting beautiful, fresh fruit that would otherwise go to waste, and donating 100% to local hunger relief agencies.

Why: We rely on our volunteers to recover and donate surplus fruit. This produce goes directly to local hunger relief agencies, which receive the produce at the end of the harvest and distribute it to community members experiencing food insecurity. Volunteers fight food waste and food insecurity simultaneously!

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

What's Expected:

Join the Volunteer Harvest Team to help us pick as much fruit as possible from trees, and then pack it into boxes to be donated.

Volunteers should be comfortable picking and carrying boxes of fruit that may weigh up to 20 pounds.

Volunteers 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 be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Have Questions or Need Accommodation? Email the Opportunity Coordinator below.

This opportunity is managed by an L.A. Works partner, Food Forward.

All volunteers participating in this volunteer opportunity are expected to adhere to the health and safety guidelines outlined here: /www.laworks.com/health-and-safety
