They are a volunteer group dedicated to promoting the historic plaza and its historic buildings. In addition, they are devoted to expanding El Pueblo’s use as an educational and cultural facility by: raising funds for the restoration, conservation and promotion of El Pueblo as a unique gathering place for the celebration of the historical and multicultural heritage of Los Angeles and sponsoring exhibitions and special events at El Pueblo.

Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.

Food Forward convenes at private properties, public spaces, and farmers and wholesale markets to recover excess fruits and vegetables, donating 100% to local direct-service agencies who feed our community’s most vulnerable.
