The mission of Forgotten Harvest is to relieve hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community by rescuing surplus, prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers. Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to fight two problems: hunger and waste. There are 280 recipient agencies within Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties, such as emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless and domestic shelters, children's homes, senior centers and group homes. Forgotten Harvest operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors and a small and dedicated professional staff.
