OAK PARK — Forgotten Harvest, metro Detroit’s only food rescue agency, today announced that its president and CEO Susan Goodell is leaving the organization to take a new nonprofit leadership position outside of Michigan.
The Board of Forgotten Harvest will undertake a professional leadership search process to identify a new president who will have the opportunity to build on Forgotten Harvest’s strong foundation.
“For 13 years, Susan has been an inspirational leader for our organization and our community has benefited immeasurably from her dedication to feeding the hungry in metro Detroit,” said David Nicholson, board chair for Forgotten Harvest and Vice Chairman of PVS Chemicals. “We will all miss her as a friend and wish her the best as she takes on exciting new challenges.”
“Whether staff, board members, volunteers, donors, agency partners or other stakeholders, Forgotten Harvest stands out for the engaged and invested people who put their time, energy, resources and hearts into ending hunger in our community,” said Goodell. “I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished together and optimistic of what the future holds for this great organization.”
