Kerry moved her family to Winnipeg in 1996 and found Harvest. In this feature video, she shares her moving story and poems she wrote about her struggles. She also talks about volunteering at Harvest and how it gave her more self-confidence. Kerry said she was so shy that she never spoke to someone until spoken to first – all that changed volunteering at Harvest.

Disability Denied, now what?
Meet Ian Graham
He’s been great for Harvest. In 2012 Ian arrived in Winnipeg with no money and no food. He applied for disability (he has one) but was denied. Instead, he was referred to Harvest. Feeling the need to ‘pay for his supper’, Ian began volunteering, doing sorting work in the Harvest warehouse. Ian has been with us for the last 9 years and we love him. Watch the video of his story. It’s short, but strong. As strong as Ian’s commitment to Harvest and our community.
