10th Annual Citrus Sunday Fruit Drive
Sunday, May 17, 2015, 9:00 am – 1 pm
Dearborn Park, 17141 Nordhoff Street
Calling all Northridge backyard fruit tree owners! Citrus Sunday is an annual one-day event sponsored by District 12 Councilmember Mitchell Englander, Northridge South Neighborhood Council, Sherwood Forest Homeowners Association, FoodForward and 9 additional Neighborhood Councils. It benefits struggling San Fernando Valley families each year by placing thousands of pounds of fresh citrus and other fruit that otherwise would go to waste in the hands of our most needy neighbors.
This year’s event will take place on Sunday, May 17 from 9 am to 1 pm. It's easy to participate! Harvest extra/unwanted backyard fruit - your own and/or that of willing friends and neighbors - bag it, and deliver it to the NSNC and Sherwood Forest Homeowners’ Association Donation Location at Dearborn Park. The fruit will be collected and redistributed by MEND and other charitable organizations that service our local food banks.
Sierra Canyon School first grader Lucas Grossman has been one of our most dedicated volunteers for the past 4 years. Please watch a wonderful video about the event that he prepared with the help of his professional filmmaker father Adam at:
If you need help harvesting your fruit, contact Samantah@foodforward.org or 818-530-4125. Food Forward’s trained and insured volunteers will harvest your excess fruit, donating 100% to local food pantries.
This is a terrific, feel-good event; don't miss this opportunity
to make a big difference in our community!
