Dozens of Donuts to Be Provided to Forgotten Harvest for Area Shelters and Free Coffee Provided for Parade Company and Forgotten Harvest Volunteers

DETROIT -- In conjunction with America's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Dunkin' Donuts is pleased to announce America's Thanksgiving Day Parade Appreciation Day in Michigan, as part of its "America Runs on Dunkin'" program.

On Thursday, November 22, for every dozen donuts purchased at participating Dunkin' Donuts, an additional dozen will be donated to Forgotten Harvest for distribution to area shelters throughout Metro Detroit. A maximum of one thousand dozen will be provided.

About Forgotten Harvest

Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to fight two problems: hunger and waste. Forgotten Harvest currently rescues over 8.5 million pounds of food per year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from a variety of sources, including grocery stores, produce 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 absolutely free of charge to emergency food providers in the metro Detroit area. The individuals and families served are as diverse as the community's residents -- young and old, from all races and faiths. The common bond uniting them with each other and with Forgotten Harvest is hunger.
