Farm to School Manitoba Healthy Choice Fundraiser has partnered with the Manitoba Association of Food Banks to distribute donation orders received by schools and daycares across Manitoba free of charge.
Every school and daycare centre has the opportunity to sell donation bundles as a part of their Farm to School fundraising efforts. Schools and daycares will receive the same 50% of total sales and food banks across Manitoba will receive the donated vegetable bundles.
Each donation bundle sold will get delivered by Peak of the Market directly to the Manitoba Association of Food Banks.
All school and daycare donations will be delivered by Peak of the Market to Manitoba Association of Food Banks in Winnipeg for distribution throughout the province each Wednesday.
The donations will then be distributed by Manitoba Association of Food Banks located at Winnipeg Harvest and distributed to the chosen food bank locations available in Manitoba. A list of food banks your school or daycare centre can donate to can be chosen by the fundraising coordinator at the time the order is placed.
If the Food Bank of your choice is not available in the list below, the fundraising coordinator has the ability to have donation orders sent directly to their school or daycare centre. These donation bundles then become the responsiblity of the fundraising group to deliver to their preferred food bank or cause.
