Our program coordinator had a great time visiting École South Pointe to see the action of their very first Farm to School Manitoba fundraiser. The school is raising funds to go towards the first phase of developing a brand new playground with play structures for their school. They were able to fundraise close to $4500!
A class of Grade 8 students along with parent volunteers jumped right in to put together almost 450 bundles! The Parent Advisory Council spearheaded this fundraiser and chose it because they liked that it can give back to the community through donations. Many participants chose to donate some bundles which amounted to just under 1800 lbs of vegetables to Winnipeg Harvest.
Congratulations to École South Pointe on a very successful fundraiser!!
