Distributor and brewer donated food to Oak Park nonprofit Forgotten Harvest
ORION, Mich. — Powers Distributing and Miller Lite announced today the distributor and brewer teamed up to donate food to Forgotten Harvest, which will help feed thousands of metro Detroit families this holiday season.
“We’re proud to give back to the communities we call home and this donation to Forgotten Harvest is part of our effort to ensure no family in metro Detroit goes hungry this holiday season,” said Jeff Bright, director of marketing at Powers Distributing. “I want to thank Miller Lite for partnering with us to brighten the holidays for so many families.”
Forgotten Harvest, an Oak Park, Mich. nonprofit, rescues food from grocery stores, markets, restaurants, distributors and caterers that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it to emergency food providers throughout metro Detroit.
“I want to thank Powers Distributing and Miller Lite for this generous donation,” said Chris Ivey, Director of Marketing at Forgotten Harvest. “More and more metro Detroiters have relied on food banks and food providers this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic and this donation will give families some peace of mind that they won’t go hungry this holiday season.”
Many of the families served by Forgotten Harvest face food insecurity and struggle to cover the cost of basic life necessities, like food, clothing and shelter. Food donated to Forgotten Harvest helps bridge the income gap for tens of thousands of metro Detroiters.
Powers Distributing, a locally owned, independent distributor located in Orion, serves retailers in Oakland and Macomb counties.
