Volunteers and staff will gather to help spread the generosity of Manitobans, by sorting the "Share your Thanks" bags.
The bags will help Winnipeg Harvest serve growing needs:
- The number of students (aged 6-18) needing food bank assistance went up by nearly 24% over the last year.
- Winnipeg Harvest also is sharing food with more EI Recipients (an 84% increase), those with no income (a 24% increase) and the working poor (a 17% increase) than this time last year.
We invite the public media to join us:
Saturday, October 10th at 10:30am, at the Winnipeg Harvest warehouse, 1085 Winnipeg Ave.
