This past Monday, July 25, Winnipeg Harvest visited the
Carpathia Housing Co-op Children's Drop In program. The group talked about hunger in Manitoba and what Winnipeg Harvest does to feed families across our province. The group at the drop-in drew pictures and donated non-perishable food items.
THANK YOU for the generous gifts! Come visit us soon!
