Vitamin C is a crucial element in maintaining good health, and is especially important for our homeless clients and families living below the poverty line. Since fruit is an expensive food
item, our clients often go without. However, we are fortunate here in Los Angeles County, to have an abundance of citrus fruit trees as a natural resource.
That’s where Food Forward steps in. www.foodforward.org Food Forward is a non-profit, grass-roots organization, which sends picking teams into residential gardens to harvest citrus fruit for the homeless and working poor. They have created an event to benefit the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry called Citrus Sunday.
Citrus Sunday is an exciting occasion which enables the community to share citrus fruit from their yards with families in need. This year we will be holding it on TWO consecutive Sundays, April 12th and April 19th.
People register their local trees at Food Forward then we go pick and distribute to our clients. The intention is to expand this network so that we have more volunteer opportunities and more food. If you have a fruit tree that produces more than you can eat, you can register your tree with Food Forward here. You can also call Samantha at 818-764-1022 ext. 0#.
Please Download the Citrus Sunday Flyer containing all the pertinent information for participation. It would be incredibly appreciative if you could distribute these among your school communities, and encourage them to donate their unused citrus fruits to the Food Pantry on April 12th and April 19th.
The North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry has their own pick team. We will do fruit picks once a month. If you want to participate in a fruit pick with our team please contact the pick leader Steve Cabrillos: firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Discover Recycling” Open House
11050 Pendleton Street, Sun Valley, CA (Google Map)
May 2, 2015
9:00 AM – 2:30 PM
LA Sanitation holds “Discover Recycling” Open Houses every year. Each of our six wasteshed district yards will open to the public in a series of free Saturday events. The Open House program showcases LA Sanitation’s residential curbside collection programs with an emphasis on proper recycling practices and bulky item collection while strengthening partnerships with City residents. The Open House will feature trash trucks and equipment demonstrations in addition to facility tours, information booths, recycling games, and refreshments. Last year, nearly 7,000 residents attended the Open House events with 290 city employees who volunteered their time to “give back” to the neighborhoods they serve throughout the year. There is no charge for admission and all ages are welcome, but we do request that pets be left at home for safety.
LA Sanitation’s Lopez Canyon Environmental & Education Center will host an information booth about the city’s green bin recycling program and give away small vegetable plants with mulch and compost made from yard trimmings. Visitors will learn about the benefits of green recycling, pot new plants and experience the recycling loop. More than 2,200 plants were potted and given away to residents last year. LA Sanitation will also partner with “City Plants” to provide 50 fruit and 50 shade five-gallon trees for adoption by city residents, on a first-come-served basis at each yard, while supplies last. (City residents must present valid identification with their city address or a current DWP bill to adopt a tree. Note: the limit is one tree per property address.) “Used Tires” from city residents will be collected, which is provided by a grant from CalRecycle. (City residents must present valid identification and a current DWP bill. Note: a maximum of nine passenger and/or light truck tires will be accepted but tires on rims and tires from businesses will not be accepted.)
