Since 2003, every second Monday, Immanuel is a distribution location for the Manitoba Harvest Food Bank.
Dates of Food Bank:
2021: July 12 & 26, Aug 9 & 23, Sept 13, Oct 4 & 18, Nov 1, 15 & 29, Dec 13
2022: Jan 10 & 24, Feb 7, Mar 7 & 21, Apr 4 & 18, May 2, 16 & 30, Jun 13 & 27
The volunteers have recently formed “A Friendship Circle” for the people who use the food bank. While the groceries are packed, coffee, tea and cookies along with friendly conversation is shared, as well as many hugs. It has been said that “This is a happy place to come to, everyone is so friendly and helpful.” Sometimes those who have used the food bank in the past have come back as volunteers.
Immanuel folks have been known to donate non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products to the “Sharing Basket” each Sunday, which provides much needed items for the families/households that come to us.
We pride ourselves in being an inclusive and caring part of our community.
