MAMAWEWESINI-TA
First Nations and Archdiocese of Saint Boniface Food Sharing Project

As you are aware, there has been an exponential increase in need at food banks. For that reason, Sagkeeng First Nation Food Bank has difficulty meeting the needs of its people. In wanting to help our brothers and sisters in Sagkeeng, the St. Boniface Archdiocese has asked each Deanery in Winnipeg to have a drop-off area. This outreach has been named “Mamawewesini-ta” Outreach because it means “Eating Together” in Ojibway.
Christ The King Parish has answered the call for South Urban English Deanery. 


For a list of the most wanted items please see below.

As for monetary donations to buy perishable items such as vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy products, etc. the donations can be made by online donation or by cheque. To donate online, click Donate on the archdiocesan website and designate your gift to the Mamawewesini-ta Food Sharing Project. Please note that the website function to accept your monetary gifts will be operational as of June 1, 2020. You can also make a donation by sending a cheque made payable to the Archidiocèse de Saint-Boniface, with Food Sharing Project indicated on the memo line, to the Archdiocesan Centre at 151 Avenue de la Cathédrale.


The drop-off days are Tuesday  mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
at Christ the King Church parking lot entrance.

There will be a table outside the parking lot entrance with available boxes
for dropping off food on those two mornings only.


Please remember:

  • to keep your social distance when others are present

  •  to remain in your cars until it is your turn to unload


Volunteers from the CTK parish will bring the food inside.


Thank you for supporting this outreach
and answering the call of being people of joy,
sharing the good news of God's love with others.
