FOOD FORWARD

In many areas of Los Angeles, entire communities grow and live without access to affordable healthy food options. Folks grab what they have access to which often includes fast food chains and convenience store snacks over fresh produce options which can be expensive or too far away to be practical. These areas are called “food deserts”. Meanwhile 40% of the produce in the US is wasted. One organization working to balance this equation is Food Forward.

Their mission is to re-distribute food surplus that would otherwise be wasted to communities in need, combating food scarcity and food waste simultaneously. This volunteer led event held in Inglewood, CA sorts through thousands of pounds of produce to create bags of fresh fruits and vegetables for community members to take home, for free.
