Food For Folks is a nonprofit organic fruit market. We order our produce from local market places which reinvest back into the community.

The profits will be invested in the North End of Winnipeg. 
We are developing a garden on a lot west of the Neechi Foods store, and growing organic vegetables for the Neechi Commons market this summer on Euclid and Main Street.

The Line-up:
Michael Champagne: talking about the community organizing The Meet Me At The Bell Tower Movement
Rainbow Tubesox
DJ BEEZNEEZ, production manager of Music First, a nonprofit music production company based in Point Douglas; he is also active in the Point Douglas Residents Committee.
Music First will be co-producing this event as part of their community solidarity efforts.
