Food Forward, founded by Rick Nahmias and manned by hordes of volunteers, has gleaned tons of fruits from farms in Southern California to be distributed to food pantries. They post regular schedules on Facebook so volunteers can meet to pick fruit.

Titakkan is back in the saddle with Salathai, on Copper and Carlisle, and he's picking up where he left off.
