Do You Have Fruit Trees in Your Backyard?
There are many individuals, seniors and families in our community with limited access to fresh produce. Meanwhile, millions of pounds of fresh fruit grown in the backyards of the San Fernando Valley and across Los Angeles County go uneaten - rotting on lawns, attracting rodents and ultimately ending up being wasted.
To connect this abundance of food with the needs of our community, the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council and the Office of Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian are partnering with Food Forward and ONEgeneration to host a Community Fruit Drive - an alternative to the traditional can drive - inviting residents of Lake Balboa and our surrounding neighborhoods to share a portion of their backyard harvest.
HOW TO BE INVOLVED:
- Register your fruit tree at FoodForward.org or call (818)764-1022. (Please mention the LBNC/ONEgeneration Fruit Drive when registering.)
- Bring a small reusable bag filled with fruit from your backyard to the Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council Community Fruit Drive at:
ONEgeneration/Encino's Farmers Market

In addition to collecting fruit, Assemblymember Nazarian's staff will be on hand to address your questions or concerns about state and local legislative issues.
At your service,
Assemblymember, 46th District
