Good luck to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2012! And thank you from Winnipeg Harvest.  At the Sunday June 4th Open Practice, visitors donated more than 200 lbs. of food and nearly $1500 in cash donations was collected for WPG Harvest at Sunday's practice.


Keep those pennies coming in! Since Winnipeg harvest launched its turn pennies into dollars campaign in April, nearly $2,200 worth of coin has been dropped donated to us. Thank you!

Your donation will make a huge difference. For every $1 in donation Winnipeg Harvest receives, we are able to leverage $20 worth of food. More than 55,000 Manitobans rely on food banks each month.

For more information on how to donate your pennies call us at 982-3581 or visit our website at

 With ‘Dallas’ coming back to the tube this week, Winnipeg Harvest has something all fans of the show may want from the character everyone loves…or loves to hate.

Larry Hagman (a.k.a. J-R Ewing) has signed a bowl (see photo) for this year’s Empty Bowl Celebrity Auction, presented by Manitoba Lotteries, October 9th at the Delta Winnipeg. Hagman’s bowl is one of many that guests will have a chance to bid on at this year’s auction.

But you’ll have to attend the 2012 Empty Bowl Celebrity Auction to find out ‘Who bought J-R?

Visit our Facebook page to see who else has autographed a bowl for Winnipeg Harvest.
