Trinity Food Pantry

The Trinity Food Pantry (TFP) continues to operate in the former Trinity Lutheran Church building. It was started by Trinity before Winnipeg Harvest started, more than 36 years ago. About 40 hampers are distributed each month for about 150 persons. Pandemic guidelines have been followed protecting both the clients and the volunteers who are all vulnerable persons. The hampers are enhanced beyond what Harvest provides to include fresh produce, high protein foods and personal hygiene products. Due to COVID 19 no Christmas Dinner was held last year. Also, the monthy meals are no longer served. But, TFP will soon offer refreshments on hamper day to engage with the clients again. The building has been purchased from Aberdeen Mennonite Church by the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. Since January 1, 2021, the building is the home of Kateri Tekakwitha Roman Catholic Church formerly located at Ellice Avenue and Home Street. Kateri Tekakwitha is the first indigenous saint in North America. The congregation and Father Vijay are supportive of the TFP. See the link below to a Free Press feature on the new home for
Kateri Tekakwitha Roman Catholic Church.

Donations are still graciously received especially since no food items have been received from congregations during COVID 19. Send checks made out to Grace Lutheran Church which is TFP sponsor. Mark for Trinity Food Pantry.
