Love Local!

By Tessa Blaikie Whitecloud
March 7, 2017

At 1JustCity we provide Winnipeg’s underloved with the things they need, including a lot of love! Some of our guests come in for the simple things – hugs!

You could say we serve love with a side of food!

We serve over 300 meals daily through our four member charities – partnering with local grocers to reduce food waste and increase access to healthy options.

From the Nutrition Bingo program, emergency food packages, to Single Men’s Cook Nights, to summer BBQs, and warm winter meals we’re about bringing community together over food – just like your family.

We also support people to meet other needs, needs like a shower before a job interview, needs like someone to show us we’re worth fighting for when our rights are violated, needs like Robert’s, who after 20 years of homelessness found contentment, stability, purpose, and family through a volunteer role at one of our four member charities.

We’re so pleased to work with Love Local – whose vision for supporting local producers, and priding ourselves on our communities fits with our vision of building a Winnipeg where no one goes hungry for food or love!
