CSUN’s Institution for Sustainability, along with Food Forward, hosted the Earth Day Orange Pick Sunday at the orange grove on campus. Starbucks and LGBT organization Gay For Good sponsored the event, as well as brought along its employees to help with the pick. All of the oranges picked on Sunday went to local food charity SOVA, which will donate all the fruit to the homeless. Rich Nahmias, founder and executive director of Food Forward, encouraged the volunteers to pick at least 18,000 pounds of oranges that day. Nahmias and his organization provided ladders and orange pickers for volunteers to use.
