The spotlight charity for the month of April is Forgotten Harvest.

For 30 years, Forgotten Harvest has fought two problems: hunger and waste.

In 1990, Forgotten Harvest set down roots in the greater metro Detroit area and began rescuing food surpluses from grocery stores, markets, restaurants, caterers, and more. They took donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, and delivered it free-of-charge to emergency food providers in the metro Detroit area. Their work has since expanded to include Forgotten Harvest Farms, where we grow our own fresh food for those in need.

All the food they rescue and produce is delivered to metro Detroit families who are food-insecure and struggle to cover the cost of basic life necessities. Their food helps bridge the income gap for tens of thousands of people, allowing them to secure some basic life necessities for themselves and their family.
