For almost 30 years, Forgotten Harvest has fought diligently against two significant problems: hunger and waste.

“We’re dedicated to relieving hunger in metro Detroit and preventing food waste,” said Chris Ivey, director of marketing and communications for Forgotten Harvest.

The nonprofit food rescue organization got its start in 1990, setting down roots in the greater metro Detroit area and working within those communities to rescue food surpluses from grocery stores, markets, restaurants, caterers and more.
