Mike’s Passion

The COVID 19 pandemic laid bare the problem of food insecurity in the United States. The dedicated men and women of Forgotten Harvest fight this problem daily, first as a massive clearing house for donated food and then as a distributor to 501(c)(3) charities in need of food ranging from soup kitchens to group homes to homeless shelters. Forgotten Harvest takes in and distributes hundreds of pounds of donated food products per day. It is known as a “four-star charity” due its long record of consistent results in the communities it serves. Mike and his wife, Kristi, are proud to be regular contributors to this indispensable local organization. Other causes Mike and Kristi support include Gleaners, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Oakland University Center for Autism Outreach Services (better known as “OUCARES”) and Forest Hills Swim Club, home of the “Water Hogs.”
