Winnipeg Harvest Food Hamper Collection

December 2015

Winnipeg Harvest - Total Storage Self-Storage - Storage WinnipegAs we head into December most of us will start gearing up for the rush of the season. Of course some of us will wait till the last minute to get everything done while some of us already have our shopping done. But, as we all know, the holidays are not wonderful for so many people in the Winnipeg area. Making ends meet can be tough at the best of times for so many families and the holidays and Christmas can be impossibly difficult.

This year, Total Storage Self-Storage has set up a food hamper collection for Winnipeg Harvest. Throughout the month of December,  you can drop off your non-perishable food items at our office at 21 Blumberg Trail, just 2 minutes past Winnipeg’s West Perimeter.

Here is a list of the 10 most wanted food items:

  1. Canned fish and poultry – tuna, or salmon (packed in water) chicken or turkey
  2. Canned fruit and vegetables (packed in own juice)
  3. Canned stew, chili, brown beans
  4. Peanut Butter
  5. Baby Food – jars of chicken, beef, vegetables or fruit, infant cereal such as oatmeal, barley or rice, Formula with added iron (While donations of infant formula with added iron are needed, Winnipeg Harvest supports breastfeeding.)
  6. Whole grain pasta/whole wheat pasta
  7. Rice – brown, converted or parboiled
  8. Canned spaghetti sauce or tomatoes
  9. Cereal – high fiber, non-sugar coated
  10. Canned soup – lentil, pea, vegetable

These food items reflect recommendations in Canada’s Food Guide and are supported by Manitoba Dietitians.

Please share what you can spare of these non-perishable food items.  Winnipeg Harvest is a non-profit, community-based organization, providing food to over 63,000 people who struggle to feed themselves and their families across Manitoba.  Through an incredible network of volunteers, Winnipeg Harvest distributes food to more than 380+ agencies throughout the province.

Please give generously and help us help Winnipeg Harvest this Holiday season.

We moved back to Winnipeg from overseas and looked into a number of storage facilities and chose Total Storage, which resulted in a very satisfied decision without any regrets on any level. Our phone calls, as well as emails, were always answered promptly and efficiently. The owner and office staffs' assistance was very helpful, professional and appreciated throughout our experience from moving back to Winnipeg.
Not only will we utilise the Total Storage facility again and again as required, we continue to recommend their operation to others who have also been entirely satisfied with Total Storage facilities and staff.
Thanks again,
