SJLI partners with Food Forward, which works with wholesale food markets to recover quality produce that is not selected by grocers and restaurants. Every Friday, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., we distribute up to 16,000 pounds of those fruits and vegetables to approximately 250 Inglewood Unified School District families and 17 hunger relief agencies that serve families and individuals facing food insecurity in South Los Angeles.
We need your help sorting and bagging produce for distribution to families.
Please bring a mask and comfortable shoes. This volunteer activity requires walking and lifting of produce and bags. If you are able, you may also lift some heavy boxes.
