Turkey Donation to the Beausejour Community Kitchen
For over 10 years, the Manitoba Turkey Producers have set aside a small fund for a rural Manitoban food bank, community kitchen or other organization around the holiday season. In 2019, the Teulon and District Food Bank and Services received a monetary donation and, even though 2020 was an anomaly of a year with several cancelled plans and events, one thing that didn’t change was the annual donation.
This year, several cases of locally produced Manitoban turkey was provided to the Beausejour Community Kitchen. These turkeys, along with some recipe booklets, will be included in their planned Christmas hampers within the community. Taking the lead of this amazing kitchen is Brenda Mousseau, who mentioned that over the week leading up to Christmas, the kitchen will provide upwards of 60 lunches on days they are open and over 30 hampers will be provided to those who need them.
From all 53 Manitoban Turkey Farmers and their families, we wish you a safe, warm and happy holiday season.
