Arab Chaldean Council (ACC) , Forgotten Harvest Join Together to Fight Against Hunger in Detroit
ACC, in partnership with Forgotten Harvest, kicked off its Fresh Food Program on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at its Youth Recreation and Leadership Center in Detroit (62 W Seven Mile Road, 48203).
From 1:30PM – 4:00PM ACC provided toys, clothes and much needed nutritional food items to those in need.
ACC’s kick-off event is expected to serve nearly 500 families from all backgrounds. Each family will receive bags of prepared and perishable foods. The economy we have faced as a community has brought a new story of despair for thousands of children, families and seniors in the tri-county area. Hunger now touches the lives of a new group of people in our neighborhoods who are in greater need of supportive resources and services. Together with Forgotten Harvest, ACC will work to relieve hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community.
ACC’s Fresh Food Program is every second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Participating families are expected to take home an average of 80 pounds each Tuesday.
