Forgotten Harvest

Support Forgotten Harvest as they continue their work to provide food assistance and fight hunger. They have a lot to celebrate in 2014 including starting Forgotten Harvest Farms last year where they grew more than 850,000 pounds of fresh produce. Additionally, they have won Charity Navigator's 4 Star ranking for the seventh year in a row. This honor is earned and only 2% of the organizations they rate, hold the 4 Star ranking.

This "trucking company with a soul," is based in Oak Park Michigan and is a National Partner of Feeding America.
