In addition to fighting hunger, Food Forward works to save produce and prevent food waste. Its current programs match surplus produce with people experiencing food insecurity. And they measure their success by serving hungry people in their community. To learn more, visit their website. To help them succeed, volunteer with them! And if you’re a farmer, consider joining their effort. Here are some tips for becoming a volunteer:
Join a Food Forward coalition. A food system transformation requires collaboration between government, industry, civil society, and consumer groups. GAIN, EAT, WWF, CARE, and ICCCAD are joining forces to help these organizations. Together, they will align efforts and accelerate action. This is the only way to make a difference. Food Forward will connect people with surplus fruits and vegetables and make sure they have access to them. And they will work with food industry leaders to share the bounty with those in need.
A CRM platform will help you keep track of all your donations and volunteer hours. Food Forward uses CITRA to track its community programs’ produce. This helps staff to keep track of food, which is an important component of the entire food supply chain. They can also track the number of pounds they pick, the number of volunteers, and the number of agencies in the food distribution network. Volunteers can also help by helping with community research, property scouting, and property scouting.
