Patti doesn’t only coordinate one Food and Friends student nutrition program, she coordinates three at Waverley Drive public school - a breakfast, snack and lunch program. She has also taken a leadership role as a mentor and site supervisor for many University of Guelph students.

Patti is a member of the Children’s Foundation Sunshine Squad - a group of volunteers that represent the Children's Foundation at community events. Patti has helped at Ribfest, the Fergus Family Info Fair and many other events. She truly is a ray of sunshine with her big smile and wonderful laugh.patti
