In small and larger communities throughout Manitoba, communities come together breaking bread with friends, families and newcomers during fall supper season.
Home cooks, using treasured family recipes, lay out a bountiful spread inside community halls and church basements in a celebration of the harvest.
Roast turkey, cabbage rolls, perogies, Manitoba-grown vegetables, saskatoon berry, rhubarb and pumpkin pies are just for starters at these elaborate dinners.
The feasts typically cost about $10 per person with proceeds going to a charity or community project. Everyone is welcome.
