Winnipeg Harvest is hoping to keep the holiday season happy for everyone this month.

The local food bank put out a call Wednesday asking people to help with its Hunger for Hope program.

Officials at Winnipeg Harvest say they are short baby formula and currently face a $100,000 shortfall in the campaign. 

Hunger for Hope, designed specifically to deal with handing out infant/baby formula, has an annual budget of $200,000 and feeds over 1,600 children a month across the province.

Approximately 27,000 children receive food from Winnipeg Harvest each month.

For more information on donating formula/money, visit winnipegharvest.org or hungerforharvest.org.
