Since 1990, Forgotten Harvest has been in business to fight two problems: hunger and waste. Forgotten Harvest relieves hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community by rescuing surplus, prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers. In the fiscal year 2011 - 2012, Forgotten Harvest rescued a record 42 million pounds of food from a variety of sources such as grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, farmers, and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food - which would otherwise go to waste - is delivered free of charge to emergency food providers throughout metro Detroit (Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties). Forgotten Harvest covers 2,000-square miles to feed hungry people.
