Forgotten Harvest, serving Southeast Michigan, is one of the nation’s premier food rescue organizations. It was created over 30 years ago by an incredible woman named Dr. Nancy Fishman, to rescue healthy, nutritious food from grocery stores, food manufacturers and distributors, farmers and restaurants, and to deliver that food to communities in need.
With a fleet of over 30 vehicles, Forgotten Harvest rescues that food and delivers it to one of their many agency partners who distribute it to families in need.
Forgotten Harvest mobile pantries are critical in helping connect with families who may not have a direct relationship with a social service agency, or who aren’t comfortable getting intimate with a group of people they view as strangers. Forgotten Harvest puts the food in your car, and you keep on going with your life.
Beginning Wednesday, May 11, Forgotten Harvest will have a truck, loaded with food, for distribution to those who want it. It will be on our parking lot from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM, the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.
St. Isidore needs volunteers to help distribute the food. You must be at least 18 years old and willing to donate a couple of hours, once or twice a month. We need people to be team leaders and also we need people to be a part of the team.
If you are interested, please call Debbie at the office, 586-286-1700, and leave your name and email address. We will then email you the date of an informational meeting that will take place in early May.
