A good Halloween haul: students collected over half a ton of food for Winnipeg Harvest during last year's Trick or Eat campaign

Trick or Eat

October 28, 2016 — 

Trick or Eat is an annual youth-led national campaign against hunger organized by Meal Exchange. On Halloween night more than 6,000 students from across Canada go door-to-door to collect non-perishable food items for their local food bank.

This fall the U of M community is invited to join the University of Manitoba Trick or Eat team and help our local food collection agency — Winnipeg Harvest.

Why should I participate in trick or Eat?

By participating, you can contribute to your local community, enrich your awareness about food security in Winnipeg, wear a costume if you so choose and Trick or Treat as an adult and simply enjoy an evening in a circle of both new and old friends.

When & Where?

Come to the Pembina Hall Student Lounge (30 Maclean Crescent) on Fort Garry campus on Monday, October 31, 2016, at 5:30 p.m.

Do you know…?

Each month about 850,000 Canadians use a food bank? Here at home, around 64,000 Manitobans of which 42 % are children receive food from Winnipeg Harvest. Winnipeg Harvest distributes food to more than 400 agencies across all Manitoba.
