Michael “Chet” Chetcuti and Kyle Evans will open up their Royal Oak home, located at 827 E. 4th Street, for Forgotten Harvest on Oct. 17.
"While Forgotten Harvest has a great story to tell, our home does as well," said Chetcuti. "Four years ago we took on the task of converting he former 1960’s/50’s Hinson Heating + Air Conditioning building into 6,400 sq. ft. that reflects our passion and appreciation for both cars and design, including rotating vintage cars from our collection showcased right in the living room."
Dr. Nancy Fishman, founder Forgotten Harvest, and David Nicholson, vice president or PVS Chemicals and Forgotten Harvest board chair will be special guests at the event.
Fishman will share her inspirational story of starting this Forgotten 23 years ago by collecting food from weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, restaurants and bakeries in the back of her Jeep. Fishman recently wrote a book about the organization’s early days called, “Eight Lessons I Learned in the Corners of the Field.”
Nicholson will share how the Forgotten Harvest has grown to be the nation’s largest food rescue organization, growing 89 percent and rescuing 43.9 million pounds of food last year alone.
