So much is happening at the Roulant these days! In this giant team update, join us in welcoming new members to the team, learn about other changes in the staff, and send fond farewells to a few people who have moved on to new things.
Maud joins our team for a maternity leave replacement contract as Communications Coordinator. She takes the lead on creating our bi-weekly newsletter, managing our website and social media, supporting the communications needs of our team, and much more. A yoga teacher with experience working in community organizations, Maud is passionate about food, wellness, and human connection and loves to share information about these topics across all kinds of media. Keep your eyes on your email inbox or our social media for exciting Roulant updates, thanks to Maud!
Also joining the team is Talia in the new role of Social Entrepreneurship Kitchen Co-Manager. In addition to leading kitchen volunteer shifts for the meals-on-wheels, Talia will lead our kitchen-related social entrepreneurship services, including our catering services, food preservation for the General Store, and the planning of high-end kitchen workshops. Looking for a caterer for an upcoming event? Don’t hesitate to contact Talia!
After serving as the Communications Coordinator for the past year, Brooke is transitioning to a new role at the Roulant, Partner Engagement Coordinator. She is now responsible for developing and establishing relationships with partnering organizations and businesses, and finding ways for partners to get involved in our activities on a deeper level.

Kateri, former Meals-on-Wheels Director, is back from maternity leave as our Transitions and Growth Director with a brand new mission: taking care of some key organizational transitions. Using her deep knowledge of the Roulant, Kateri will work to improve and develop some of our internal processes and systems, so as to better address our growth as an organization. She will also act as a mentor for the new roles within the staff, and will continue to work on the ground, helping with volunteer shifts and client relations. Come on by or give her a call to say hi!

With these changes comes a number of very big thank yous to staff who have recently left the Roulant. We thank Bahara, our Meals-on-Wheels intern, who provided much love and support for our meals-on-wheels and volunteer programs. Thanks go to Isabelle, the Food Preservation Coordinator over the last three years, who shared tremendous insight on canning and fermenting, as well as awesome community engagement and teaching skills. And thanks go to Marie, who acted as the Social Entrepreneurship and Marketing Coordinator, strengthening and developing our many important revenue-generating activities.
Please join us in celebrating the important contributions that these team members brought to the organization, and wishing them all the best in their next adventures!
I wish these incredibly talented three women great success in their future endeavours. I really appreciate their contributions & will miss seeing their smiling faces each week. I hope they will come tou our special events such as the Nov. 2 Gala so we can continue to stay in touch. With gratitude for your great contributions to Santropol Roulant, Andrea Strom-Rancourt, past kitchen volunteer & present deliverer of meals-by-foot :)
Thank you for these kind words, Andrea!
