The May Hunger Offering will support Forgotten Harvest. They have responded strongly to the Covid-19 emergency by continuing food pick ups and making deliveries to partner agencies that remain open.
Forgotten Harvest is uniquely qualified for this role as they have been fighting against hunger and waste since 1990. “Forgotten Harvest On the Go Pop-up Pantries” is a new program. Staff and select volunteers put boxes of food directly into trunks of cars at scheduled times and locations all around metro Detroit. The need for food has increased greatly due to widespread unemployment. They hope to reopen their Warehouse and Farm to volunteers in June.
GPMC Outreach has provided $2,000 to match congregation donations this month. Tell us you want to direct your donation to Forgotten Harvest by choosing GPMC Hunger Offering as the recipient when you donate on-line or indicating it on the memo line of your check.
