031: Solving food waste and ending hunger one box of produce at a time with Rick Nahmias

A decade ago Rick was an award-winning photographer and writer who focused on the faces and stories of marginalized communities. One day in 2009, while walking his dog, Rick literally stumbled across the idea that wasted fruit in backyards and farmer’s markets across our community could become a sustainable source of nutrition for the food insecure in SoCal. Now, over 8 years later, Food Forward delivers over 400,000 pounds of fruits and veggies each week to organizations that feed families and individuals in need.
