The Epitec team enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer at Forgotten Harvest in their new warehouse in Oak Park, MI.
Our 35 volunteers had a great time participating in relieving hunger and preventing nutritious food waste in the Metro Detroit area. We are also happy to announce that the team broke the record of packed frozen vegetables! We packed 8,780 pounds of broccoli – over 3,500 pounds more than the previous record.
