Forgotten Harvest Begins Michigan Milk Drive


From Aug. 10 to Aug. 16, Forgotten Harvest is asking patrons to participate in the Michigan Milk Drive by donating milk at Busch’s Fresh Food Market in Plymouth Township. Busch’s and the United Dairy Industry of Michigan will match every gallon donated up to 5,000 gallons.

“Milk is very nutritious, however it’s expensive, so those in need typically can’t afford it,” says Kirk Mayes, CEO of Forgotten Harvest. “We appreciate the support of Busch’s Fresh Food Market, United Dairy Industry of Michigan, and Prairie Farms, and with their help we can provide a healthy option to those that face hunger.”

On Aug. 15, a Prairie Farms’ milk truck and Forgotten Harvest’s truck will both be in front of Busch’s Fresh Food Market to collect the week’s worth of donations. During the event, Busch’s will be selling hot dogs with all proceeds going to Forgotten Harvest.
