Fight Hunger With The Marygrove Alumni Association

Fight Hunger with AlumniSince 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.

The Alumni Association is pleased to support Forgotten Harvest by sponsoring a community service project for Marygrove alumni and friends at their warehouse on March 1 from 1-4 p.m. We will spend an afternoon re-packing fresh nutritious food items that will be used to feed the hungry throughout the Detroit metro area.

Forgotten Harvest is located at 21800 Greenfield Rd., Oak Park, MI, 48237. Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age and are required to wear closed-toed shoes (no high heels.) The work area gets chilly so you may want to bring a sweater or light jacket. All other items needed for the work area will be provided so you are asked to leave personal items in your vehicle.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Gloria Banks ’11 at (313) 802-1217 or Francis Simmons ’85 at (248) 546-2876 no later than Feb. 28, 2014.
