Due to traffic flow and dense congestion, Forgotten Harvest is moving its Oak Park Mobile Pantry Distribution (previously on Oak Park Blvd.) to a new location.

The final distribution was Wednesday, Sept. 20. Forgotten Harvest remains deeply committed to the community they serve and we remain committed to helping them find a new distribution location. As soon a new location is ready to distribute food to the community an announcement will be made.

In the meantime, please visit their website for other pantry locations:

Please stay tuned for updates on a new location.

Once we begin the process of selecting tree locations for each planting season, city staff will inspection each property to ensure that the area is large enough and can support the growth of a tree.

We cannot tell you when the tree will be planted, but can assure you that we will keep your request on file for future consideration.   If you have any questions, please reach out to our staff at the Department of Public Works.  We can be reached at 248-691-7497.
