Mrs. Ghislaine Théoret

Mrs. Ghislaine Théoret: For over 20 years, Mrs. Théoret has been the heart and soul of the Garde-Manger Pour Tous which feeds daily over 3,000 students, including over 2,500 children from underprivileged areas in Montreal. This organization fulfills basic needs and is instrumental to the success of these children’s studies. It employs over 100 people and is for many their first stable employer in areas where jobs are few. The success of the Garde-Manger Pour Tous is the result of the vision and leadership of Mrs. Théoret. She is vital to the management of the Garde-Manger Pour Tous, to its development and growth, often with reduced means. Thanks to her short and medium term strategic vision for the organization, as well as the stable and long-lasting relations she developed with the various partners and donors, she truly is a cornerstone of the Garde-Manger. For the past 20 years, she has mobilized people, created a sense of belonging and maintained a healthy and motivating work environment based on mutual assistance and recognition for all employees and volunteers. Also, Mrs. Théoret has been volunteering for the past 15 years with les Ateliers cinq épices, and for almost 20 years with the Table de concertation sur la faim du Montréal métropolitain. Congratulations, Mrs. Théoret, I am very pleased to recognize your efforts in the fight against hunger!
