WHAT:
Bob Evans Farms has teamed up with Forgotten Harvest, Metro Detroit’s only food rescue operation, to help feed Metro Detroit’s food-insecure individuals and families. Through CBS EcoMedia’s WellnessAd program, Bob Evans will fund the basic needs of Forgotten Harvest’s Mobile Pantry Project at Landmark Church for a full year. This includes costs of distributing the food, sourcing the food, program implementation, and necessary equipment and supplies.

Bob Evans Farms support will provide nutritious food to 350 underserved families per month, serving 4,200 individuals annually.

An event will be held to celebrate the partnership and the impact on families in the community. Bob Evans Farms employees will tour Forgotten Harvest’s facilities and then volunteer by repacking food to be distributed to food pantries across Metro Detroit.
