DTE Energy Donates Hybrid Truck to Forgotten Harvest

February 05, 2010

DETROIT - Forgotten Harvest was one of 57 nonprofit agencies awarded more than $760,000 in grants as part of a partnership with DTE Energy Foundation.

Forgotten Harvest received $50,000 in grant funding from DTE to support operations of a new hybrid diesel/electric truck. The organization will use the vehicle to rescue 875,000 lbs. of fresh food from grocery stores and other donors and deliver it to 155 food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters serving metro Detroit's most vulnerable residents.  

The grants are a departure from the DTE Energy Foundation's long-standing mission to fund Michigan nonprofits supporting leadership, education, the environment, achievement, development and diversity. The Foundation board voted last year to reallocate funds to organizations addressing the critical human needs of families and individuals affected by Michigan's economic downturn.
