Asian Pacific Islander Forward Movement supports Asian and Pacific Islander communities in Los Angeles, collecting from harvests grown by independent API California farmers and distributing the produce to families facing food insecurity, says Heng Lam Foong, the organization’s program director and an adviser to UCLA’s Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander COVID-19 Data Policy Lab.
