Forgotten Harvest, an Oak Park-based food bank focused on reducing food waste and hunger, has announced the hiring of Michael Butman as its Chief Information Officer. He will be leading technology improvements at the organization as part of the executive team.
With over 30 years of technology leadership experience and 22 years of non-profit experience, he will lead the way as the company makes a digital transformation in order to better meet its stated goal of getting the right food to the right place in the right quantity at the right time.
Formed in 1990, Forgotten Harvest has been striving to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in the metro Detroit area. The group saved over 47 million pounds of food last year that would have otherwise gone to waste.
