1.What did I learn about Winnipeg Harvest?
I learned how important Winnipeg Harvest is to many people and how big the part it plays in the community. To think, without Winnipeg Harvest many people would be left to starve, and without the countless and generous donations they receive, Winnipeg Harvest would be out of food within a week. Almost none of the donations are wasted. When they come across something they can not send or use they try to compose waste material and most of the leftovers, even sending some unusable bread to be sent to feed animals, such as horses.
2.Who does Winnipeg Harvest Help?
Winnipeg Harvest helps anyone who is in need of food. On average, 56 000 people use Winnipeg Harvest every month. Sad to say, half of the people are under the age of 18. While on my tour I could tell that the clients are very grateful to them when I saw a few lending the Harvest a hand. Behind each client is their story. Each have a reason for not having the money for food. Some being the need for medical attention, but do not have the money for both. Whatever it is Winnipeg Harvest will care to their needs the best they can, even making sure you get the nutrition you need through the basic nutrition kits.
