Forgotten Harvest has embarked on a transformational $17 million campaign to maximize the alleviation of hunger and food insecurity across southeastern Michigan, as our organization begins its fourth decade of service.

Email Tim Hudson, at thudson@forgottenharvest.org, to donate to the campaign.

WHY WE’RE LAUNCHING THIS CAMPAIGN

Demand for emergency food remains very high for many children, families, and seniors in metro Detroit. Forgotten Harvest’s mission is essentially unchanged from its founding in 1990, but the community’s expectation of what it means to serve our neighbors in need has. It’s no longer sufficient to address hunger with as much food that is available. Food equity, access, and proper nutritional mix are critical health priorities. Forgotten Harvest developed an innovative strategic plan to deliver the Right Food to the Right Place in the Right Quantity at the Right Time. This updated vision aims for a higher standard based on health, nutrition, wellness and community connection.
