I am a newcomer to Grand Rapids from London, Ontario, Canada and made this move after recently getting married. I have two grown boys, am a lover of the outdoors, travelling and enjoying life after 50 with my husband in the great state of Michigan. My background has always been based around food, people and art. I had the fortunate experience in attending both the BealArt program in London, Ontario and OCAD in Toronto majoring in print making. After many years in the restaurant business I realized my connection with food strengthened as I became more aware of our neighbourhood families facing food insecurity. I went back to school and acquired my Community Developer Certification as I wanted to jump right into the social justice of ending poverty. Couponing has been a way of saving money and reducing your bottom line for years and I want to share this skill and excitement with our community families. Can you imagine the impact if the residents of Grand Rapids donated their unwanted coupons to families in need?
