Food Forward, Rick Nahmias’s effort to get fresh produce in the hands of those who could use it, is growing in popularity, and now has a home on the web. Visit foodforward.org and its companion blog, foodforward.wordpress.com for more information about scheduled picks and how you can contribute labor or fruit trees that need picking.
Rick also alerts us that there are several upcoming picks for which they need volunteers:
- Saturday, May 2, 2009 at 10:00am in Northridge (several trees)
- Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at 5:00pm in Granada Hills
- Saturday, May 9, 2009 at 10:30am in Tujunga (several trees here!) and
- Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 5:00pm in Northridge
For more information, contact Rick at info [at] foodforward [dot] org or Fred Summers at SOVA (818.988.7682).

We’ll continue to share announcements of Food Forward’s picks here and on our own Twitter feed, but if you’re interested in being a regular part of Food Forward’s team, we encourage you to get in touch with Rick and learn more about the program.
