Event description

Description

Celebrate Winnipeg's first anniversary as a Fair Trade City with a night of good food, friends and fair trade.

We hope you'll join us for our inaugural fundraising dinner, Near & Fair: A Celebration of Manitoba's Connections to Fair Trade.

The evening features a special menu using fair trade and local ingredients, as well as an internationally-recognized keynote speaker, Julie Francoeur, who will discuss the impact of fair trade and how the movement is connecting communities across Canada and the world.

This is your opportunity to enjoy a unique culinary experience while you explore the stories behind some of our favourite foods, and discover how to support the people who produce them.


6:00 p.m. — Cocktails

7:00 p.m. — Dinner




Keynote Speaker: Julie Francoeur

Julie spent eight years in the Caribbean and South America working with communities on fair trade production and the export of bananas, sugar and wine before taking on her current position as executive director of Fairtrade Canada. She brings valuable insight and expertise on the international fair trade movement.
