Winnipeg is _______.
Everybody’s gotta eat, but not everybody can afford to eat well. Eating healthy, locally produced food is trending across the county, but eating well doesn’t have to be limited to the summer gardening months. Despite our long winters there are many organizations around Winnipeg working to promote local food production and sharing year-round.

Vera Pizzeria is a new face in South Osborne, and although they’ve only been slinging ‘za since Dec. 8, they’re generating a steady stream of interest. The Italian casual dining spot specializes in Neapolitan-style pizza as well as classic and contemporary versions of Italian cuisine.
Nils and Melissa Vik are finally chilling out. It’s undeniably well-deserved. Nils opened up Little Sister Coffee Maker with Vanessa Stachiw, Melissa’s sister, in September of 2013. Melissa gave birth to their first child, Marte, the following February. In between all that, the pair of 31-year-olds oversaw the construction of a gorgeous house in St. Boniface. It’s not a combo that Nils would immediately advocate.
Lunch Bell Bistro opened a few months ago on the ground floor of Main Street’s Bell Hotel Supportive Housing Complex, between Higgins and Logan Ave. The small diner’s staffed mostly by people living with cognitive and developmental disabilities.

MAW’S Eatery and Beer Hall can be easy to miss if you’re walking through the Exchange District, although the white awning over the door certainly stands apart from a sea of grey. It’s more than worth taking the time to track down.
