Pete and Paula Give Back To The Community at Forgotten Harvest
Pete and Paula spent the afternoon volunteering by packaging food at Forgotten Harvest. Their experience with Forgotten Harvest has been a rewarding one! Giving back to the community is an important part of their lives. If you have a morning or afternoon that you can donate some time Forgotten Harvest would be most appreciative.
Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to fight against two major problems: hunger and waste. Forgotten Harvest "rescued" 48.8 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from 800 sources. They get help from farmers, dairies, restaurants, grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets and many other sources. The donated food is delivered to 280 emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area (free of charge) and services Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. Forgotten Harvest mission statement: They are dedicated to relieving hunger in Metro Detroit and preventing nutritious food waste.
Forgotten Harvest states the following: Volunteers are critical to the mission and daily work of Forgotten Harvest. Without your help, we simply could not help those in need. We guarantee that your Forgotten Harvest experience will be one that you will never forget!
