Ventura County Foodbank Teams Up With Harvesting Organization To Try To Increase Food Supply For Those In Need

Posted on Friday, June 22, 2012 12:22am

Ventura County’s largest food bank has joined forces with a food harvesting organization, to try to increase the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables it has available to distribute.

FOOD Share teamed up with Los Angeles based Food Forward, with volunteers from both groups teaming up to harvest extra produce from neighborhoods, public spaces and homes in Ventura County.

The two groups will officially kick off their new drive this weekend, at an event in Camarillo. International Paper is donating thousands of of citrus boxes to store the gleaned produce.
