Forgotten Harvest

Forgotten Harvest “rescues” over 45 million pounds of food each year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable items from several Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would otherwise go to landfills, is delivered free of charge to emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area.

First Baptist Church of Holly provides this FREE FOOD to families in Oakland County and surrounding areas on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of every month.

Doors are open for check-in from 10:00am to Noon. Food distribution begins at approximately 11:00am. (This time may vary, depending on the arrival time of the truck and how much preparation is needed to divide the food.)

Please help us by registering at least 24 hours in advance. Call (248)807-3992 to register, or for more details.
