Jackie SilverbergNominations and Board Orientation Committee, Chair
Jackie is a recently retired Family Studies teacher. Many of the courses she taught were food related, with a major focus on sustainability. Jackie met FoodShare staff when she implemented a Healthy Food program at Agincourt Collegiate over 10 years ago. This program has been a huge success, offering good healthy food options to all students. The program successfully ensures that many of the students are eating fresh vegetables and fruit on a daily basis.
This past year Jackie had more time to devote to FoodShare, helping to plan and execute the PD day, Recipes For Change, for educators. She is still very excited about contributing more time and energy to the Board and to the Student Nutrition Program. Her philosophy and values align perfectly with FoodShare’s. As well, Jackie is an active member of her synagogue’s food committee and volunteers regularly with the Out of the Cold breakfast program.
