We are delighted to have Wendy on board as part of the Fruit Share team! Wendy will be taking over all of the summer coordinator work over the next few months.
Wendy is a multi-passionate, lover of learning, connector of people and she enjoys teaching and sharing healthy and delicious food. She began her career teaching children before moving into curriculum development and teacher training.
She is the founder of More Than Shoes, a program that provides new running shoes and winter boots for children in need, and the author of More Than Soup (a fundraising cookbook for CancerCare Manitoba’s Soup Cart Program).
We’re ready for you!

We love teaching people all about fruit, how to take care of it, pick it, preserve it, cook with it and bake with it. In fact fruit promotion and education is right up there withour love ofeating, picking and sharing fruit!
That’s why we’re super excited to once again receive a grant from the Assiniboine Credit Union to help us facilitate workshops and events that will help us increase awareness of our local fruit and what to do with it.
Camille Metcalfe of PegCityJams has led many of our workshops over the last couple of years and will be at it again this season. Camille has a creative flair in the kitchen and gets groups making chai crab apple jelly, fruit ice cream, fruit soda syrups and amazing baked goodies.
