Brenda RiccardiStudent Nutrition Program Coordinator
Brenda completed a Bachelor of Arts in the Philippines before coming to Canada in 1989, and started working at FoodShare on September 2010 as Student Nutrition Community Development Animator. Before joining FoodShare, she took courses in Banking and Customer Service at Humber College, worked in retail, the food industry, as a lunch supervisor for a Catholic School, and was a very active parent volunteer.
Brenda is proud to be working at FoodShare for what it stands for, it's philosophy, as well it’s principle, and enjoys the welcoming friendly family atmosphere. It’s an organization that well represents the city’s diversity (like the UN if I may say so). Her position as an animator allows her to visit schools and see students eating healthy and nutritious meals, help and support the coordinators and further resolve to advocate for healthy eating habits for the younger generation. Brenda is proud to be part of a movement that encourages people to eat healthy and feed hungry students.
