Garden School Foundation x 24th Street Elementary Farmers Market

Thu, Jan 19, 2023, 7:00 AM PSTFrom Food Forward Produce Pit Stop to 24th Street Elementary School - Addresses Below

Twice a month, the ACFC community volunteers at the Garden School Foundation’s free Farmers Market held at 24th Street Elementary, in partnership with Sprouts, to help distribute fruits and vegetables to families from the community. Each family receives 1-2 bags each, depending on the size of their family, with over 4,000 lbs of produce donated on a monthly basis to 150 Families. Through the program, in 2022, we are expected to donate over 36,000 lbs of produce to 900 families.

Volunteers will be responsible for picking up produce from the Food Forward Produce Pit Stop and delivering it to 24th Street Elementary School, where they will help distribute fruits and vegetables to the community. Volunteer shifts will run from 7 AM to 10 AM.

Food Forward Produce Pit Stop: 5600 Rickenbacker Rd. Bldg 2E, Los Angeles, CA 90040

24th Street Elementary School: 2055 W 24th St, Los Angeles, CA 90018

Please register HERE as a volunteer and show up to the shift you signed up for. More details will be sent out within 4 days of your shift. If you are unable to make your shift, please reach out to promptly. Thank you, and we look forward to volunteering with you!
