Trick or Eat!

A good Halloween haul: students collected over half a ton of food for Winnipeg Harvest Inc.

About 60 U of M students did an unusual version of Trick-or-Treating this Halloween: they went door-to-door collecting non-perishable food for Winnipeg Harvest Inc. They collected over a half a ton of food through this initiative.

This is the sixth year our students have organized a “Trick or Eat” drive, and their first year as part the Canada-wide Trick or Eat Meal Exchange campaign. Meal Exchange is a non-profit organization that is supported by Food Banks Canada and exists to eliminate hunger in Canada. As the first group in Manitoba to participate at a national level, PRAXIS is a Student Life service-learning program supported by Student Residences in which students learn about social justice issues.

The Trick-or-Eaters are comprised of students from PRAXIS, residence students and other students from the U of M.

“We are pleased with the number of students that signed up to take part in this great initiative, it is always a successful and fun event,” says Britney Truman, PRAXIS coordinator.

If you want to support the Trick or Eat Meal Exchange, please donate money online at under the PRAXIS Student Life University of Manitoba campaign.
