Florence Desaulniers has been part of the Winnipeg Harvest network for an incredible 20 years this month!
She served as the director of the food bank at The Wave Church (formerly Waves of Glory) for two decades and still helps out when she can as the “Mom of Honour” according to Pastor Duane Siemens, who adds that it was Florence’s relationship-building skills that made her such an incredible leader to the community.
“It was my ministry,” said Florence, on why she took the position all those years ago. “I wanted to help the poor and this is where the poor people were. We’ve had more than 100 people most times we have the food bank and we did walk-ins on top of that for many years.”
