Did you know that 25% of food in North America is wasted every year? At Winnipeg Harvest 12.8 pounds of food is collected and sent out every year! On a field trip I recently visited Winnipeg Harvest and I was impressed to find out they feed over 60 thousand people a month, and half of them are children under the age of 12. With the food they collect every year they could fill a football field 7 times… waist deep! Every single day at Winnipeg Harvest 14 trucks are constantly moving to pick up and deliver food to and from places all around the city. Winnipeg Harvest is a non-profit organization with only 30 paid workers and tons of volunteers! Winnipeg Harvest is proud to supply to food banks, soup kitchens, day cares and breakfast programs. I think Winnipeg Harvest is an amazing organization created by Sue Lemmerick and I would like to say thank you to them and to all the people who donate food, time and money, for helping others when they need it most.
