A Month of Giving for Talascend

Official Talascend Release
Troy, MI - December 6, 2013

Employees within Talascend’s Headquarter office in Troy, MI spent the month of November gathering food items for a local charity, Forgotten Harvest.  The mission of Forgotten Harvest is to relieve hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community by rescuing surplus, prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers.

This was Talascend’s 2nd year partnering with the non-profit organization and through the efforts of our very generous employees, we were able to provide 350 pounds of food to this worthy organization.  According to food industry standards, 1 pound of food = 1 meal, so the Talascend efforts alone provided 350 meals to those who may have been hungry this Thanksgiving. 

What better way to offer thanks for what we have, than to provide for those who don’t.

Forgotten Harvest currently transports, on average, more than 3,000,000 pounds of rescued food each month to soup kitchens, pantries and shelters. Last year, they “rescued” more than 40 million pounds of food by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from 455 sources, including grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered free-of-charge to more than 260 emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area.
