Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Information


Oakland County executive Dave Coulter, and health officials have issued an order that requires screening procedures for employees of essential businesses and implementation of social distancing for employees and customers. For Forgotten Harvest, this means that volunteers and staff will have to be screened as well. Please click here for more details.

Forgotten Harvest prioritizes the health and safety of our community, volunteers, and staff. We are taking extra precautions around our facility, and we are preparing to respond to increased needs for food-related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The impact of COVID-19 will increase the need for food in metro Detroit to assist many children, families, and seniors in the coming weeks. Forgotten Harvest is operating to provide healthy, nutritious food to our neighbors in need. We are currently working with nonprofit, government, and community leaders to implement contingency plans to deliver food in the most effective and safest way possible given these unprecedented events.


How You Can Help

The economic impact of COVID-19 has increased food insecurity in our community. Closures of businesses and schools could affect lower-income families and people with hourly wages in particular. While all support is appreciated, financial support lets us use your gift to meet the greatest needs. A donation of any amount helps us continue to respond. A special donation website has been created. Click here to donate.

You can also host a Facebook fundraiser. Click here to find out how.

We’d like to say, “thank you,” to all who have donated to Forgotten Harvest to help us address better address the needs of the community, that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
