Project Details

What We Need
  • Personalized feedback and up to 5 coaching sessions with one member of the Organization
  • Document outlining strengths, weaknesses, and suggested next steps and/or resources for the member
What We Have In Place
  • Public speaking has taken on a few additional elements during COVID, including Zoom skills and in person mask wearing... I have presentations prepared that I would be happy to share with you, in order to hear your critique of how I can better represent my organization.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,660 , allowing us to save over 51,960 pounds of good nutritious food from being thrown into the rubbish bin. Instead, Hidden Harvest puts good food to good use in our soup kitchens, food pantries and area shelters.

Typically when I am giving a presentation representing my organization, I am provided with the opportunity to bring in much needed resources. Whether recruiting volunteers or cash donations, our food rescue and hunger relief program needs the buy in of the community.

About The Org

Hidden Harvest
Our Mission

Putting good food to good use in the Great Lakes Bay Region

What We Do

HIDDEN HARVEST strives to alleviate hunger and end food waste in the
Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan by providing a safe and coordinated
system of rescuing surplus food and redistributing it to feed people in need.


Trevor helped me to fine tune my presentation skills and re-organize the structure of my presentation to provide an audience wow-ing experience. His donated volunteer time not only saved money in terms of not hiring a consultant to work on this need, but also the most recent presentation that I gave resulted in a $3000 donation from the civic group!
