Winnipeg Harvest will unveil its first ever refrigerated cube truck on Tuesday as part of a large food donation through Project Meal Share.
The program is the safe distribution of surplus-prepared foods from donors such as hospitals, restaurants, nursing homes and hotels to Winnipeg’s soup kitchens.
With an excess of these hot nutritional meals being thrown away, Winnipeg Harvest is at the receiving end to help feed its thousands of clients.
Project Meal Share currently has a donor base of 10 institutions which services 10 food banks and 12 soup kitchens, including Siloam Mission and Agape Table, 21 school programs, 39 day cares and 70 meal/snack programs.
The unveil is set for 9 a.m. at Harvest’s warehouse.
