Board of Directors

A Community of Shared Commitment

The many achievements of The Grocery Foundation reach far beyond any one individual. Instead our impact has been made possible by a community of grocery retail companies, food, beverage and consumer goods companies, their leaders and teams of associates who agree student nutrition is a vital part of a vibrant nation.

The shared vision and commitment of our 2023/2024 Board of Directors continue to guide our 45-year history of helping Canadian children in need.
