VIDEO: Dinner is served: Manitoba’s fall supper tradition

The community of Carman has been feeding both body and spirit for generations

Fall suppers have wrapped up for 2016, but the appetite for the tradition remains strong in many rural Manitoba communities. One example is Carman United Church which has served fall suppers to tens of thousands of people over the decades, and come every October, volunteers of all ages help plan, cook and serve a meal that feeds over 1,000 visitors. In this video, hear from some of the volunteers who have helped make Manitoba’s fall supper tradition a success and some of the challenges it faces in the years ahead.
