"Click of the mouse sends free veggies to food bank"

CBC had a story about this place last week. If you don't mind some free recipes in your inbox, why not sign up? You can unsubscribe at any time.

Here is the link to the CBC story:

Here's an email you can get from Peak of the Market, to forward to your friends:

Sign up for Peak of the Market's free recipe e-mails in February and Peak of the Market growers will donate 50 pounds of fresh vegetables to the Winnipeg Harvest Food Bank. Just visit and subscribe to free recipes on a daily to weekly basis. The only information asked for when subscribing to the recipe e-mails is your e-mail address and province or state or country. No information is shared with any third party and the service can be unsubscribed at any time.

Our goal is to get at least 10,000 people to sign up for our free recipe e-mails in February. Ten thousand people equals 500,000 pounds of fresh vegetables for the Food Bank. We think this food drive is truly a win / win. Peak of the Market gets more subscribers to our free recipe e-mails and the Food Bank gets food for those less fortunate.

Peak of the Market's free recipe e-mail service currently has over 31,000 subscribers in 77 countries and sends out more than 600,000 recipe e-mails every month. Fresh new recipes are available every day.

Winnipeg Harvest, founded in 1984, is a non-profit, community based organization that collects and shares food with more than 325 Food Banks and Soup Kitchens helping 39,000 people every month, almost half of those are children. Their ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for food banks. More information is available at

Peak of the Market, founded in 1942, is a not for profit grower owned vegetable co-operative and strongly believes in giving back to the community through our charity work. For information on Peak of the Market, our Mission & Values and my CEO's Message please visit

Please forward this e-mail to your friends and family. The more people who sign up for our free recipes, the more vegetables will go to the Food Banks. Just imagine how many people we could help if everyone forwarded this e-mail or talked about this on their Blog or Website.

E-mail and the internet has certainly changed the world we live in. This is a chance for people around the world to use the internet to help so many people less fortunate than themselves.

Take care and please don't forget to eat your veggies!
