Name That Cobbler!

So, what was the mystery dish that graced the top of our Autumn newsletter?

If you guessed it was one of Getty’s incredible creations, you were right. It’s an Apple and Berry Cobbler she posted back in November 2011. Something about a Grey Cup … I think we were all pretty excited about it back then.

Enjoy and be sure to share with us how it came out!

Dehydrating Fruits and Veggies

Can an Apple a Day Keep the Doctor Away?

Turns out, this sweet, crisp, and juicy fruit can really do a body good! Apples are loaded with more nutrients than we give them credit for.

Low in Fat & Calories – Apples are a healthy and sensible snack, that are filling too! Good news is that one apple contains less than 100 calories. Great for the body and the waistline!

Fibre – Apples are a great source of fibre. The peel and pulp of the apple are the main contributors to the fibrous content. One medium sized apple contains over 4 grams of fibre.

Fruit Share Photo Contest

 

On September 18th, Food Matters Manitoba is hosting a Gallery Exhibit AGM at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and they have asked us to be a part of it! In order to showcase the amazing work going on in the food security field in the province, the AGM will feature a photo exhibit capturing the work that we and their other partner organizations do. We’ve been invited to submit and image that demonstrates how Fruit Share has been involved in increasing Food Security for all Manitobans.

So, we are opening it up to you – our volunteers and homeowners – who better to capture what we do? Please send us your best shots of picks or other Fruit Share events. We want to show that Fruit Share is about building community, as well as rescuing fruit, so keep that in mind as you select your submission.
