ABOUT THE EVENT
Families and communities across metro Detroit have been hit hard by COVID-19, thus increasing food insecurity for many by more than 50 percent. During the pandemic, Forgotten Harvest has seen a big increase in community food resource needs. Many families are turning to emergency food providers for the first time. Even though many parts of the economy are opening back up, the need for food assistance and resources is ongoing, which is why Forgotten Harvest is partnering with CBS 62 (WWJ-TV) and CW50 (WKBD-TV) for a televised donation drive to help feed those in need in metro Detroit. “Feeding Detroit: A Motor City Meal-A-Thon” will be instrumental in supporting this increased need.
Thanks to our match partners, PNC Bank, and a local family, all donations during this virtual event up to $200,000 will be matched! Every donation made during the event period will have double the impact. For every $1 donated, Forgotten Harvest can provide $14 worth of groceries or about eight meals to individuals, seniors and families in need. Funds raised will go directly toward costs incurred while distributing additional food, renting additional warehouse space, and operating additional distribution sites since COVID-19.
Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 7 p.m.
(CW50 will air an Encore on Saturday, July 4 at 8 p.m.)
Televised on CBS 62 and CW50 | Streaming Live on CBSdetroit.com and CW50detroit.com
