Join us and get your "PICK" on for those less fortunate!
We are working with an organization called Food Forward, who's mission is simple: the picking, donating and distribution of fruit or vegetables for humanitarian purposes. Read more about this fantastic organization here: http://foodforward.org.
At this event, we will be picking at an area orchard or farm located in Studio City. Our picked harvest will be donated to food banks and shelters around the LA area :D! It is moderately labor intensive, getting on ladders, bending down, standing on your feet or lifting boxes of fruit or veggies, etc. Just be prepared for any type of task. Our shift is from 10:30 am - 12 noon. Unfortunately, the location can only accommodate 10 folks but don't worry, I'll schedule another "pick" with this organization in the future.
Wear comfy clothes, closed toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals please), your own gardening gloves, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water (we will be working in the sun).
Food Forward is counting on our helping hands this day so please don't be a no show. Update your RSVP before the deadline date (July 11th) so others can attend. PHTC member participation policy for all events: No plus one's! All volunteers must register and be a member of our group to attend PHTC events. Final details, location address and parking information will be sent 2 days prior to the event to all confirmed "YES" attendees.
Thank you for participation and support.
