Save the date! MAC gives back by volunteering at Forgotten Harvest farms in Fenton, Michigan. The farm grows fresh produce which is distributed to local charities - providing fresh and nutritious food to many who otherwise couldn't afford it. Check out the story of the farm here: https://youtu.be/I9rSLHvl2tg We'll be helping the farm team with some of their farm tasks - wear your work clothes and closed toe shoes - put on some sun screen. Bring a hat and some work gloves if you have them, and water is always good. The farm team will give us tasks when we show up - tasks vary depending upon weather and season. The farm is just one of Forgotten Harvest's many projects - Forgotten Harvest is a non-profit organization that focuses on distribution of perishable foods to local food banks and other organizations. They deliver 138,000 pounds of surplus food to local charities six day a week - often perishable items that would otherwise be thrown away. You can find more details about Forgotten Harvest on their website - www.forgottenharvest.org Come join us as MAC gives back to the local community!
