During a MIMB, students engage in a curriculum-linked presentation about Manitoba agriculture followed by a Manitoba-made breakfast served by local producers and industry professionals. Students gain a better understanding of where their food comes from and realize how connected they are to agriculture every day.

Presentation Topics

  • Early Years - Where does our food come from and the farm-to-food journey

  • Middle Years - The farm-to-food journey, everyday items from agriculture, and agriculture and agri-food careers

  • High School - Agriculture buzz words and agriculture and afri-food careers
     

Breakfast includes pancakes, canola margarine, honey, pork sausages (chicken sausages for students with religious and/or dietary restrictions), hard-cooked eggs and chocolate milk.

The Made in Manitoba Breakfast is made possible with generous donations from Parrish and Heimbecker, Richardson International, BeeMaid, Manitoba Pork Council, Manitoba Chicken Producers, Countryside Farms and Dairy Farmers of Manitoba.
