Nicole joined Canadian Feed The Children in August 2018 as Program Officer for our Canada Programs, based out of our Winnipeg, MB office.
Nicole is a member of O-Chi-Cha-Ko-Sipi First Nation and is of Métis ancestry. She grew up in Winnipeg, and completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in urban and inner city studies at the University of Winnipeg. Nicole has always had a passion for community development, Indigenous rights and food security issues. Prior to joining CFTC, Nicole spent three-and-a-half years as a Program Coordinator at Food Matters Manitoba, where she supported and worked alongside northern and Indigenous communities on food-related projects across Manitoba.
Nicole uses food as a tool to connect to her ancestors, learn about cultures, and celebrate traditions. By connecting through food projects she hopes
to work towards decolonization and reclaiming Indigenous identities.
