This will be my last post before Christmas. I hope you and your loved ones are happy and well. We are doing fine here.
It’s important to remember in this time of giving and sharing that not everyone has enough to eat. CBC Manitoba recently ran a series of articles on local food banks and told the stories of people who access their services.
It’s really eye-opening to see the variety of people who use their services. This single mother lost her job due to depression and needed a food bank. Most users of food banks are women.
I urge you to consider donating time or money to food banks, if you’re not already doing so. You can donate food too, but I believe donating money is more effective. The food bank can allocate it to where it’s needed, and often they can purchase food in bulk and make your donation go farther.
Here are a few organizations you could consider donating to.
Thank you for helping others.

Happy holidays to you and yours Steve!
Thanks Sheldon, the same for you and yours!
I’m really enjoying catching up on your blog this morning.
I’ve long been a supporter of our community kitchens and food banks. I also noticed how some neighbours will leave tins of non perishable items in the tiny bookhouses dotted through our city and I do the same. There can be any combination of reasons to look to any of these places for help and I can’t imagine the feeling of it not being there. Thank you for your support—it feels good.
Hi Chris, thanks for stopping by! That’s a great idea to leave non perishable items in the bookhouses. I guess they would have to withstand being frozen too…
I’ve been fortunate to never need a community kitchen but I know people who have. Sometimes you need a little help and I’m glad to support them in my small way.
