“It goes to a great cause, it goes to Winnipeg Harvest which is a great organization for our community,” Rob Wozny with True North said.

Bins were set up throughout MTS Centre for fans to bring non-perishable food items to the game.

“Winnipegers came out and did a great job to support this campaign for the Winnipeg Jets annual food drive,” Wozny added.

The Jets beat the Blues 5-3, improving to 22-23-4 on the season.
