ORGANIZATION: Food Forward

Interested in checking out what Food Forward’s Backyard Harvest program is all about? Join us on this Community Harvest as we pluck the oranges off nearly two dozen trees in this gorgeous backyard.

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:**
