BENEFITING: FOOD FORWARD INC
I see a world where healthy nutritious food is accessible for all ! Right now, 40% of Californian feel "food insecure", meaning they struggle buying the food they need at least occasionally. In the meantime, million pounds of ORGANIC produce are wasted ! That's where the food banks come to play, fetching edible food that would been thrown away otherwise, and redistribute it to people in need.
Food Forward recovered almost 12 million pounds of food from both farmers and wholesale markets, in addition to harvest directly fruits from private and public properties. The food is then redistributed through 300 local organizations.
The organization obviously rely on donations to keep running and improving, and that's why I am going to volunteer and raising $5000 for them ! My goal is to go further and teach people how to cook and also distribute healthy cooked food to the working class that are busy but can't afford quality restaurants. All the money raised will go to Food Forward ( www.foodforward.org ) so they can retreive more food and help more people !
