Once in a while we get emails or phone calls inquiring where people can donate fruit and other perishable food in Winnipeg. They’re eager to share, they just don’t have information about where to go.
We’d like to help. We’re working on developing a complete list of organizations that accept food donations and all the details about when, how much, where, etc. All this information will be collected and published in an online and printed guide that we call Guide to Backyard Fruit.
Thanks to funding from the Manitoba Alternative Food Research Alliance and the Canadian Home Economics Foundation, this guide will be completely free of charge to charities, libraries, community organizations and neighbourhood associations.
Here’s who we’ve been in touch with so far. If you know of other organizations that should be on our list, please let us know or forward this post to them along with this link Food Charity Registration Form.

Thanks for helping us share!
