Million Meal Summer Challenge and School Pantry Project
The Dresner Foundation provided Forgotten Harvest a $75,000 grant to support their Million Meal Summer Challenge and School Pantry Project.
Forgotten Harvest is dedicated to relieving hunger in metro Detroit and preventing nutritious food waste. Established in 1990, Forgotten Harvest rescues fresh food from 800 donors, including wholesalers, farmers, dairies, and grocery stores. This food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered at no charge to 280 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and mobile pantries across metro Detroit.
The Million Meal Summer Challenge and School Pantry Project will increase access to nutritious fresh food for food-insecure children living in high-poverty during times when they lose access to school breakfast and lunch programs.
