JOIN US AT THE FORKS THIS WEEKEND!
This free public event will be Saturday, March 18, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at The Forks Market (Room 201 on second floor) and will offer visitors a chance to explore the vibrant and innovative world of agriculture in Manitoba. Stop by the booth hosted by the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health & Medicine, (CCARM) to learn more about their research areas and recruitment for clinical trial participants!
The UM Food Fight will take place 10 am. Come watch the University of Manitoba Food and Human Nutritional Sciences students present their new food product concepts that they have taken from drawing board to test kitchen. Student teams will “pitch” their product ideas and provide a product sample to a panel of judges. Who knows, maybe you’ll see their unique entries at a store near you one day!
While you are there, come visit the Bruce D. Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre booth where they will be handing out MAKE recipe cards and providing a “living necklace” hands-on activity. Throughout the event, there will be exhibits and information from many of Manitoba’s agricultural and food sector organizations, including lots of giveaways, games and interactive fun from planting strawberry plants to crushing canola.
