Forgotten Harvest announced a fundraising program with local food product companies that is expanding with new partners. Through the partnership, manufacturers donate a portion of sales of products with the Forgotten Harvest logo on the label, to the Oak Park-based food rescue organization.
Premium food manufacturers that are participating include Romano’s, Slow Jams, Mucky Duck Salad Dressing, Detroit Bold Coffee, Apolonia Dressing, Jen’s Dressing, Scotty O’Hotty Hot Sauce and Michaelene’s Granola.
The marketing program is supported by local retailers and distributors, including Kroger, Busch’s Fresh Food Markets, Holiday Market, Hollywood Market, Westborn Market, Market Square, Papa Joe’s Market and Plum Market. Lipari Foods, in conjunction with Acosta Sales and Marketing, will act as distribution agents.
The slogan of the program is “Tastes Real Good-Does Real Good.”
