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. The campaign is almost 70% complete and we need your help to cross the finish line!

WHY WE LAUNCHED THIS CAMPAIGN – BETTER SERVING THE COMMUNITY

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. Food insecurity isn’t solved by addressing hunger with any 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.
