Founded in 2009, Food Forward fights hunger and prevents food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same. Food Forward staff and volunteers recover 435,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables each week from fruit trees, farmers markets, and the Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market. This nutritious food is donated to hunger relief agencies across Southern California.
Food Forward is the official beneficiary of the 2019 Lexus All-Star Chef Classic. $1 per ticket sold to the event will go toward Food Forward's initiatives to fight hunger and prevent food waste in Southern California.
