Volunteer-Forgotten Harvest

Let's take time out of our busy lives and spend a morning fighting hunger in Metro Detroit with Forgotten Harvest.


Where: Forgotten Harvest, 21800 Greenfield Road, Oak Park, MI 48237

Time: ***We will probably be volunteering anywhere from 3- 4 hours. We will meet out front at 9:15a.m.


What: According to the volunteer coordinator at Forgotten Harvest, “Meal Assembly of prepared food for distribution. Please, no open-toed shoes, and/or shorts.” What you will be doing is taking prepared foods and breaking them down into single serving meals and into family sized (4) meals. This is a real hands-on experience to provide food to the hungry. You will be working under the direction of people who prepare foods daily."

Some people have expressed interest in bringing along minor children. Minor children are indeed acceptable as volunteers if they are ten (10) years old or older. However up through the age of 15 they must be accompanied by an adult that will be responsible for them and work alongside them. Sixteen and over are acceptable without a supervising, responsible adult alongside, of course assuming the 16 year old is indeed responsible him/herself.

Forgotten Harvest was established in 1990 to fight hunger and waste. Their mission is to relieve hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community by rescuing prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers. Last year they rescued 9.5 million pounds of food and redistributed to emergency food providers in Metro Detroit.

    Wonderful opportunity to help out local families in need. Just show up, and they put you to work. A few hours later, you're cleaning up and on you way knowing that you've helped make a difference in so many peoples' lives.

    It was a good volunteer experience. A little messy with some rotten fruit but that is to be expected.
