We are very excited to announce in partnership with CSUN Hillel “BIG PICK 3 @ CSUN’s ORANGE GROVE” on Sunday January 31st starting at 9:00am.  There are 30+ orange trees remaining to harvest! These are mature, tall trees with most of the fruit hanging high branches. Due to the placement of the fruit we are not encouraging young children on this pick. We are expecting a big volunteer turnout and have a limited number of fruit pickers.  If you have a fruit picker PLEASE bring it.  If you are inclined to buy a fruit picker you can purchase one for under $20 at most garden and home improvement stores.

Please RSVP via email TO CARL@FOODFORWARD.ORG with the following information to reserve your spot(s):

1)     Date of pick requested

2)     Total number of spots requested and name(s) of pickers (please include ages of children if they are under 18)

3)     Email address

4)     Cell phone # that you can be reached at on the day of the pick

We look forward to see you at a pick very soon!

Carl

  1. Good Morning! I stumbled upon your organization this a.m. on radio station 100.3. I am happy to see your great work & all it offers. I had a idea several years ago on a non-profit food raising company that I want to share with your organization that might further enhance your outstanding work. I will try calling your office’s to further discuss.
    The company was what I called the “7 f s”
    Finally feed family’s food forever for free.
    Have a good day, Tom

  2. What a great event. I had the idea and someone else ran with it and now I will support this 100%. I think it is so wonderful to not let those oranges go to waste and who better to give them to than the homeless. Nice to see that CSUN is cooperating and donating to this worthy cause.
