Winnipeg Harvest is a non-profit, community based organization that is a food distribution & training centre. Our goals are to collect and share surplus food with people who are hungry and to offer training opportunities to help people step up and out of poverty. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for food banks in our community.
Could you live on $3.96 of food per day? A single person living on employment and income assistance (EIA), or better known as welfare, is given an allowance of $3.96 a day. The Poverty Pledge challenges participants to do the same for one week.
Due to wear and tear, Harvest is getting low on chairs in our volunteer kitchen / cafeteria. Each day, we serve lunch for about 50-100 volunteers from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. - and it's getting harder and harder to find a place to sit! Please share this post, or better yet, drop off a new or gently used kitchen / stacking chair at 1085 Winnipeg Avenue this week!
Do you know if you qualify for up to $270 in shelter benefits from Manitoba’s Rent Assist program?
