One of my friends volunteers at her local food bank and passed on the following video:

It got me thinking and so I checked out what Winnipeg Harvest was looking for these days.
Thought I'd share this list with you in case anyone is interested. I'll be looking through my coupons that are expiring soon to see if I can use any of them for donations.

The Winnipeg Harvest website says you can drop off donations at your local Safeway.
Here's the list and the link:
    1. Canned fish and poultry - tuna, or salmon (packed in water) chicken or turkey
    2. Canned fruit and vegetables (packed in own juice)
    3. Canned stew, chili, brown beans
    4. Peanut Butter
    5. Baby Food - jars of chicken, beef, vegetables or fruit, infant cereal such as oatmeal, barley or rice, Formula with added iron *While donations of infant formula with added iron are needed, Winnipeg Harvest supports breastfeeding.
    6. Whole grain pasta/whole wheat pasta
    7. Rice - brown, converted or parboiled
    8. Canned spaghetti sauce or tomatoes
    9. Cereal - high fiber, non-sugar coated
    10. Canned soup - lentil, pea, vegetable
Please share what you can spare of these non-perishable food items.
