Community Cooks Coordinator
Chantal’s love of growing and preparing food is aligned beautifully with her role at York Region Food Network. Her ability to view food preparation from a perspective of self-care, ease and fun is reflected in her work with community organizations through food skills programs and her weekly commitment to meal production. Chantal’s experience began as a child growing up on a small scale farm. She learned to raise animals and grow vegetables with her father and learned how to preserve the gardens bounty with her mother. Health and wellness have been the professions that have most inspired Chantal over the years and before working with YRFN, she coordinated a student nutrition program in a York Region public school.
In her personal life, Chantal loves to cook, garden and go on regular hikes while foraging for wild edible plants and mushrooms. Her other favourite activities are knitting slippers, playing piano, watching football & formula 1 races, making herbal tonics and salves and rocking out to 80’s & 90’s music while cooking and working out!!
