Althea Guiboche celebrated one year of bringing the bannock on Thurs., Jan. 30 outside Neechi Commons (865 Main St.). Dubbed “The Bannock Lady,” Guiboche sets up at Main Street and Dufferin Avenue every Thursday afternoon and serves homemade bannock and soup to Winnipeg’s hungry and homeless. The 39-year-old mother of seven was one of five recipients of the 2013 Manitoba Heroes Award in October. The one-year anniversary party featured a free bannock and chili lunch, hot chocolate, live entertainment and a warm clothing giveaway.
