Amazon Flex drivers will help deliver food boxes from Forgotten Harvest to homebound people for free.

Forgotten Harvest is expanding its fight against hunger in Metro Detroit, and they are getting help from Amazon to do it.

Thanks to a new partnership, Amazon Flex drivers are going to help deliver food boxes from Forgotten Harvest to people who are homebound for free.

Forgotten Harvest volunteers pack boxes with 20 pounds worth of nonperishable food at the warehouse in Oak Park. Amazon Flex drivers pick them up from there and deliver them to people across WayneOakland, and Macomb counties.

Gerald Patterson is one of those drivers. He believed the opportunity was the perfect fit for him. He’s worked for Amazon for the last six months and has worked with Forgotten Harvest through his church’s food outreach program.
