Appetite for paying it forward – West End meal vouchers feed hunger for food and community connection

“It’s become a place where people know that if they need help, they can come and ask for it,” says owner Christa Bruneau-Guenther, who keeps a pot of soup bubbling on the stove and a stash of warm clothes in the office for anyone in need. Bruneau-Guenther has been serving free food to hungry neighbourhood residents since opening her Indigenous restaurant at the corner of Ellice and Sherbrook eight years ago.

How a failed search for Indigenous food delivery led me to explore ‘Winnipeg’s’ culinary scene

While we were in the city this past August, a few of us from the IndigiNews team met at Feast Cafe and Bistro to have lunch with my two aunties who live nearby. We shared memories about my mooshum, Murray McKenzie, who was a photojournalist and radio broadcaster in Manitoba. We shared some big laughs, all while the smell of freshly baked bannock surrounded us. My auntie gifted us with an abundance of sage. It was a beautiful experience, beginning to end.

5 Unique Ways to Experience Indigenous Culture in Canada

In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Feast Café Bistro was founded in December 2016 by chef-owner Christa Bruneau-Guenther, a member of the Peguis First Nation. It’s not a fine-dining establishment and the restaurant has no formally trained chefs, instead focusing on a mandate to hire people who have had previous barriers to employment; all the chefs are trained on site.
