I was the project manager for our company volunteer leadership group and selected Forgotten Harvest based on what I read, and let me tell you best decision of my life. I had no idea of what I was doing, Krista Poole helped me every step of the way while I coordinated appx 100 volunteers intenrally. Once we arrived at Forgotten Harvest I was able to see the wheels set into motion. They provided an overview, the coordinators (Chef Aaron) quickly broke out the team into sections, and we were off and running. We were a constant movement of hustle and bustle until everything was completed, but what a great feeling. I provided the group with a survey after the event asking what we could have done better, outside of a few things I was responsible for the feedback was 100% favorable, with everyone stating they would do it again. The event was held in the fall and I am helping another leader coordinate our return back this month. Great organization with people who really care!!

I am a regular volunteer at Forgotten Harvest. It is amazing the amount of food that is rescued and put into the hands of those who need it. It is a great place to give of my time, because I feel that I am personally helping to alleviate hunger in metro Detroit.

I coordinated a service project with Forgotten Harvest and the students who participated had a great time! Forgotten Harvest did a great job of explaining their role as an organization and the impact that the volunteers would have by donating their time. The students had very positive feedback about their experience and have developed a greater understand of hunger and how they can help fight it in their every day lives. They also expressed that they enjoyed volunteering and felt that they really made an impact in their community through working at Forgotten Harvest. Many are already asking when we'll be doing another service project with them!

Forgotten Harvest is the most efficient food relief organization in the country and it provides food, quality fresh food that was destined for the landfill unless they rescued that food. From the humbling beginnings of picking up food out of the back of a 1984 Jeep Cherokee to a fleet of 25 refrigerated trucks they now provide nearly 20 million meals annually. They are the best bang for the donated dollar in all of the US.

Get them more trucks to rescue more food as people in metro Detroit are literally going hungry with food in plain sight.
