Daily Bread Mobile Feeding
These are tough times for Metro Detroit. Unemployment, homelessness, and hunger surround us. But we aren’t without hope. For we know that through Him and in Him, all things are possible. Forgotten Harvest and EACH have partnered together to minister to the hurting, the forgotten and the hungry. It’s our mission – through the Daily Bread – to feed them body and soul.
To date, Daily Bread has served over 65,000 meals and hundreds of volunteers are working to refer those in need to shelter, personal counseling, job counseling, spiritual guidance and more.
Volunteers are needed to pick fresh produce and load a Forgotten Harvest truck that will be on its way to the tables of those in need. Dates and locations are listed below. Volunteers can register on-line at forgottenharvest.org or contact the Volunteer Manager, Marci Fitch at 248-967-1500 x 125 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
TIME: 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. for all dates and locations.
