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.
