Meet our Team
Have you ever wondered who is behind the amazing work that we do? Well, the truth is . . . A LOT of people. The work that we do today would not be possible without our extensive roster of incredible volunteers and paid staff members. We are so thankful for all the busy bodies that volunteer/work towards our mission. Poverty should not be fought alone. We are in this together as we work towards more long-term solutions and supports to assist our community and partners. Every day is a good day to make a change!
Below you can read about some of our extraordinary team members!
Nancy Wright-Laking has been with CFN since 2018. She is the current Chair on the Board of Directors for CFN and sits on the Communications and Fund Development Committee.
Favourite part about volunteering with CFN: I like volunteering with CFN because of the wonderful people who give so much of their time to fight food insecurity and heat insecurity. I would like to see a time where no one has issues with getting enough food or enough warmth for their home. I also hope for a time where everyone is able to make a liveable wage while living in a place of safety.
Favourite food: ham and scalloped potatoes . . . yummy!
