Winnipeg Harvest has announced the eighth-annual Latter-day Saints Summer Food Drive in support of Harvest is underway this week.
The drive, which is being held from July 15 to 20 in St. Norbert, includes 15-year-old Belle DeGuzman, a veteran volunteer with Winnipeg Harvest who attends J.H. Bruns Collegiate in Southdale. She will be part of a team that will drop door hangers off at homes in different areas of the city.
Those with hangers are asked to leave non-perishable food on their front doorsteps July 20. The food will be picked up between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day.
A totally of 237,786 pounds of food has been collected over eight years, including matching contributions from Peak of the Market and Canada Safeway.
Hangers will be dropped off in St. James, Charleswood, North, East and West Kildonan, St. Norbert, River Heights, St. Vital and Fort Richmond.
For those who don’t receive a door hanger, there will be four drop-off locations on July 20 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. These include: 700 London St., 505 Academy Rd., 45 Dalhousie Dr. and 807 Setter St.
