Our guest this week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast is Rick Nahmias, the founder and CEO of Food Forward. Food Forward is a non-profit organization that harvests fruit from backyard orchards and distributes food so it doesn’t go to waste.
Rick was a professional photographer, but changed directions in 2009. He shares his story of how Food Forward came about, and how we can all participate in our own way to end food insecurity.
