Food Forward recovers good fresh and healthy food that would otherwise get thrown away and donates it to local food banks. We are at the Brentwood Farmers Market every Sunday from 1 pm – 3 pm collecting donations from Farmers who have extra fruits and vegetables at the end of the market. All of the produce we collect gets donated to food banks in the Brentwood area.
Volunteers pass out boxes to farmers, collect boxes full of fresh produce, and weigh and sort produce to be donated. All you need are comfortable work clothes and shoes. Volunteers must be 12 to participate. 12-15 year olds must be accompanied by an adult. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://foodforward.org/events/ to sign up!
Every Sunday from 1 pm - 3 pm
