Southeast Michigan Poverty Report

Report by Data Driven Detroit

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

Forgotten Harvest, a nonprofit that relieves hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community byrescuing surplus, prepared, and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers, was interested in developing a better understanding of poverty indicators for southeast Michigan. They were also interested in demonstrating that it was much more than a city of Detroit issue.  Data Driven Detroit assisted with the creation of the Southeast Michigan  Poverty Report by providing context through analyzing indicators and policy related to poverty rates, food stamp eligibility, and free and reduced-price lunch.
