Harvest Manitoba is a charitable organization that ensures that no Manitoban goes hungry. In a normal month, the organization feeds 83,000 Manitobans—including hungry children, hardworking families, adults and seniors—through over 350 agencies including food banks, soup kitchens, schools and daycares.
Last year, thanks to the support of CBC audiences across the province, $306,037 was raised in support of Harvest Manitoba.
