About Us

Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to fight two problems: hunger and waste.

Forgotten Harvest “rescued”45.5 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus

prepared and perishable food from 455 sources, including grocery stores, fruit and

vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors

and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would

otherwise go to waste, is delivered free-of-charge to more than 280 emergency food

providers in the Metro Detroit area.
