Wild Blueberry Pancake Breakfast
Every fall, we host the Annual Wild Blueberry Pancake Breakfast in the North End. The community partner-catered breakfast is a celebration of CED in Winnipeg’s inner city and is a highlight of the LITE campaign.
Apart from raising funds for our fall campaign, this event brings together supporters and newcomers to LITE, while promoting and demonstrating CED in action. The Breakfast attracts up to 1000 people, including community members, business leaders, civil servants, students, community workers, MLAs and the Premier – all in support of LITE.
Local musicians, artists, and craftspeople (Arts & Crafts Sale) all earn income through the breakfast along with our caterer partners. A local Aboriginal worker’s co-op, Neechi Foods, is the grocer for the breakfast.
This year’s Breakfast is Friday, November 22nd from 7-10 am (come and go) at the Indian and Metis Friendship Centre (45 Robinson at Dufferin). Tickets are $15, $5 low income or children 6-12, children under 6 are free.
