In an effort to raise funds for our ongoing operations (we need about $10,000/yr) Fruit Share held a pie and cider sale this fall. And of course, we opted to make the pies from scratch with apples and pumpkins rescued by Fruit Share. We were pleasantly surprised by the tremendous support we received from you and all of Winnipeg! We sold 200 pies and endless jugs of cider. Making all those pies was pretty intense but with the help of some very dedicated volunteers we succeeded and ended up raising about $1,300.
A big thanks for the product donations and financial support of Controlled Air, Poco Razz Farms, Sobey’s, RedPath Sugar and Prairie Flour Mills. Another big thanks goes to Jeanine Friesen of The Baking Beauties for making our gluten free pies and to IBEX Payroll for their ongoing administrative support.
