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.
Friends from food banks across Canada visited us in June. From L-R: WH Executive Director David Northcott, Aart Schuurman Hess (Vancouver), Richard Daneau (Montreal), Gail Nyberg (Toronto), Pam Jolliffe (Food Banks Canada), David Armor (Food Banks Canada board), Marilyn Herrmann (Food Banks Canada Network Council), Michael Maidment (Ottawa), & James McAra (Calgary).
Early in June, volunteers got to work tilling and planting the Harvest Garden at the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. Veggies will be harvested in the fall and donated to Winnipeg Harvest. We can't wait to see this garden flourish!
