People want purpose and passion in their lives, including at work.

Join the hundreds of organizations affiliated with one of Manitoba’s most well-known and well-loved nonprofits. We have a wide range of fun and rewarding activities to engage your employees, reach your philanthropic goals, and increase brand awareness. We can customize your volunteer involvement by whatever motivates your team the best.

One in five Manitobans struggle with food insecurity, and the need is only getting greater. No one should have to make impossible decisions like paying for food, medication, feeding their children, or rent. But by working together, we can change lives and create a healthier future for all where no Manitoban goes hungry.

Whether your organization is big or small, we want to work with you! For more information and to customize your experience, please contact Joanne Patenaude, Senior Manager of Development, at or call 431-482-1495.

Thanks to Your Support, We Fight Hunger Head On.

Every month, 50,000+ people visit a food bank in Manitoba.

We distribute over 12 million pounds of nutritious food every year.

Our network supports 380+ food banks and agencies across 46 communities in Manitoba.
