Story #1
Air Date:  July 1, 2013

Michelle Jackson left her job in the corporate world to help her neighbors in Osborn, a neighborhood in Detroit.  She founded the Connor Creek Food Pantry, where once a week, people in need can get fresh and healthy food for free. Forgotten Harvest helps supply her with fresh vegetables and food, but she still has to turn away as many as 400 people every week.

People who come to Michelle’s food pantry often take the food for themselves and for neighbors in need. Michelle has even given food out of her own refrigerator when her food pantry runs short.

When the lease for Connor Creek Food Pantry ended, Michelle couldn’t afford to renew or move to another facility until “5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People” presented her with a $50,000 check.

With the $50,000 from “5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People”, Michelle plans on feeding at least 50,000 more people in need.
