Avocado grower Eco Farms supported an avocado event in Los Angeles in early August.

On Aug. 4, Eco Farms was the “official avocado sponsor” at the 7th annual Angel City Avocado Festival and donated proceeds from avocado and citrus sales to Food Forward, an organization designed to use fresh surplus foods to fight hunger and prevent food waste, according to a news release.

In addition to selling avocados and citrus, Eco Farms had nutritional information and recipe ideas for consumers.

“We loved celebrating avocados at the Avocado Festival and loved helping Food Forward raise some money,” Gahl Crane, sales director for Eco Farms, said in the release.
