Box Truck Fundraiser

We’ve come a long way since our inception! From starting a food line in a tiny garage we are now operating a 60+ volunteer well-oiled machine. Our net has been cast far and wide for precious food.  We are ready and eager to grow and tighten our operations. We’re shopping out our largest purchase to date, a box truck. Why? Because every week we have to rent a U-Haul to pick up food from all around LA to distribute on Sundays at UCLA Village. It is not time or cost-efficient. Our ability to serve our community is limited only by the resources at our disposal. This truck would go a long way in helping us help all the people we can.

You can make a difference

Hear how Nourish LA helped Thomas D.

“I’m a 72 year old man who takes care of my parents who are 98 and 96. It’s been tough especially during and after the pandemic. One thing we look forward to has been Sundays since we receive nutritious food from Nourish LA delivery. Thank you. Bless you all.”

If you have trees full of fruit and would like to help feed your community, Nourish LA is here to make it happen. 

Here’s how it works: Every Friday between 10am and 2:30pm, our dedicated team will come to your home and pick the fruit from your trees. We handle all the heavy lifting so you can sit back and feel good about making a difference.

But it doesn’t stop there. On Sundays, we head to UCLA Village to distribute this bounty of fresh, flavorful fruit to anyone and everyone who can use it. From students to families, seniors to individuals in need, your fruit helps nourish our community and prevents it from going to waste.

Together, let’s turn surplus fruit into smiles and abundance into opportunity.

If you would like to help pick fruit you can sign up here.  Make sure you fill out the volunteer waiver if you haven’t already.
