Fruit Forward: New Partnership Keeps Us Picking
Fruit For All has formed relationships with many people since my family and friends started picking fruit in 2010. Some of our homeowners have called us three or four times to harvest their trees. After my brother headed off to college, I wanted to ensure a harvest organization would be here to help our loyal customers. Food Forward is the perfect answer. The folks at Food Forward share our philosophy and our work ethic, and we feel Fruit For All loyalists will be in good hands in the coming years with Food Forward.
Like Fruit For All, Food Forward is a non-profit, volunteer-powered group that picks fruit and donates 100% of it to local food pantries. Fruit picked in San Gabriel Valley will primarily go to SGV food banks and pantries. Call Food Forward at 818-530-4125 or visit its website http://foodforward.org and click on the “Get Involved” and then “Property Owners” tabs to register your tree. Food Forward is fully insured and all property owners receive a tax deduction for every pound harvested. In addition, on the website, you’ll see how easy it is to sign up to join one of our picks. Select the “Events” tab and look for a pick in the San Gabriel Valley and join us.
