September Picks Still Open!!

Hello Food Forward Volunteers!

 

As some of you may know, THIS Saturday we are picking Valencia oranges on a huge, lush estate in Montecito (near Oprah’s estate) from 9AM-3PM, with a light lunch provided by the Food Forward crew in the middle of the day.

 

We’ve had a decent turn-out so far, but could still use at least another 30 volunteers! The drive to Montecito from Sherman Oaks is a short 75 minutes along PCH, so if you’re interested in meeting at a central location in the Valley and carpooling with someone, please e-mail marie@foodforward.org. If you’d like to attend this fantastic volunteer event, please RSVP to marie@foodforward.org with the following information:

  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. E-mail address
  4. Cell phone # you can be reached at on the day of the pick.

Please respect the time commitment you make:

Volunteer participation is crucial to the success of our organization. When volunteers do not show up, not only does it prevent somebody who wants to volunteer from doing so, it ultimately diminishes the amount of fruit that is harvested for the hungry. If for any reason you are not able to attend the pick that you signed up for, please contact the pick leader or Marie at marie@foodforward.org or Carl at 818-554-8696.  The experience of your participation is very important to us. Please give us any ideas on how we may improve.

 

Great News!!!  Food Forward is now officially a non-profit 501(c)(3). Your monetary or equipment donations are greatly appreciated!

 

 

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

 

Sincerely,

 

The Food Forward Team
