Appetites were satisfied Saturday at The Forks as National Pasta Day aimed to raise funds for Winnipeg Harvest.

Local chefs donated their time to cook up pots of pasta and meat/vegetarian sauce to go along with it. For $5, the public was served a plate of pasta and a bread stick.

For the minimal price of a few dollars, Winnipeg Harvest is able to provide 20 meals to local families in need.

Brent Prockert, president of the Winnipeg Chapter of the Canadian Culinary Federation and one of the event’s organizers, estimates that about $900 was raised during the four-hour luncheon.
