We are an all-volunteer organization, and we encourage you to volunteer to lead a harvest so that we can continue to grow into a more sustainable, full-time program. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to learn how to help us with this issue.

Harvest Partners LB is an all-volunteer program based in Long Beach, California. The program evolved from an entity formerly known as SoCal Harvest, an organization that was founded in January, 2009, to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The name was changed to Harvest Partners LB in late 2016 when it was incorporated by CityHeART, INC.
Support us in our mission to redistribute thousands of pounds of fruit all year long to local food banks, shelters and pantries in Long Beach, providing rescued produce to those in need. With more funding we’ll do more healthy projects in our city!
Checks can be made payable to City HeART Inc. — Memo: “Harvest Partners LB” — mail to: 2201 E. Willow St Suite D #301 Signal Hill, CA 90755
Volunteers will pick your homegrown goodness (typically will take 60-90 minutes) for donation to a local pantry. The majority of the produce we harvest is served to the homeless community via Feeding Long Beach; remaining produce is donated to food banks such as Food Finders and local Long Beach shelters.
If you have a specific shelter or pantry that is close to your heart, let us know — we would love to bring your produce their way!
[Due to the abundance of fruit harvest requests in Long Beach, please only fill out this form for donating produce if your fruit tree is full and has more than 100 pounds of fruit on it.]
If you prefer to pick your fruit yourself, we can connect you to the shelters and pantries we work with to help make your delivery simpler.
Notes on volunteering with us;
Requests for volunteers will normally be sent out 5-6 days before the harvest. Confirmation emails will be sent 1-3 days prior to the harvest with the exact address, ladder / box needs, what to wear, etc.
Feel free to forward harvesting dates to friends! Each person volunteering must RSVP with their own email and cell number.
NOTE: Harvest Partners LB works primarily in Long Beach, California, and surrounding cities (mainly Lakewood, San Pedro, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, etc.) Check with us if you are within 10 miles from Long Beach!
