Food Forward

Food insecurity continues in L.A. County, which has the highest food insecurity rates in the entire nation. Food Forward is addressing this urgent need through its food recovery and distribution programs. Since its founding in 2009, Food Forward has recovered and distributed more than 400 million pounds (2.2 billion servings) of fresh fruits and vegetables. By diverting this food from becoming waste, Food Forward has also prevented more than 340,000 metric tons of CO2-equivalent emissions.
