What did you learn about Winnipeg Harvest?
I Learned that 56 000 people use Winnipeg Harvest every month. Winnipeg Harvest is also a big part in Canada because Manitoba is the 3rd highest province that increase of food bank usage. It was really shocking to me to learn that some of the food that is thrown out from the warehouse is used to feed the animals in a farm an example would be expired bread. Also If Winnipeg Harvest stopped receiving donations it would be out food within 1 WEEK therefore Winnipeg Harvest needs to keep receiving food.

Where does Winnipeg Harvest get the food it supplies to its users?
Winnipeg Harvest get the food they distribute to it's users from their Bakery, some Supermarkets, Donations, Businesses and also even schools. Examples of where the donations are from would be Winnipeg Harvest Bakery, Superstore, Sobey's, Safeway, Lucky Supermarket and especially the donations coming from every kind people. The Agencies or Businesses that do help Winnipeg Harvest gave them loading trucks to make the process of giving the packages out easier. Donations are important to them because if they stopped receiving them the warehouse would be out of food within 1 week.
