At Forgotten Harvest, it’s our goal to ensure that the bounty of the harvest season is enjoyed by all. That’s why we’re pleased to announce the return of our annual Women’s Harvest Lunch at the Royal Oak Farmers Market on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022, presented by the Kroger Co. of Michigan! This fundraising event brings together women, businesses, and community leaders who are committed to alleviating hunger and reducing food waste for an exciting & charitable afternoon.
Featuring a coursed luncheon highlighting seasonal, nutritious ingredients we distribute to the community, the event will also feature distinguished speakers as well as a networking hour. Guests may also enjoy a mixology demonstration led by Detroit culinary team Fried Chicken & Caviar as well as a complimentary drink pairing (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available). Proceeds from Women’s Harvest Lunch benefit our organization’s efforts to provide fresh, healthy produce that is too often unavailable or unaffordable to Metro Detroiters in need via our farm, pantry partners, and grocery rescue system.
