CFSG Co-Chair - Joanna Candas (She/Her)

​Hello!! My name is Joanna Candas (everyone calls me Jojo) and I am in my final year of the Human Nutritional Sciences program (dietetics prep). I am delighted to be a part of the Campus Food Strategy Group this year, and I look forward to advancing any initiatives that support a more sustainable and fair food system on campus! Also my favourite food is a peanut tofu pad Thai.

CFSG Co-Chair - Hiwot Jonk (She/Her)

Hello, everyone! My name is Hiwot Jonk and I am a third-year Human Nutritional Science (HNS) student in the Dietetics Prep pathway. This is my second year with NECO, and I'm excited to be organising fun activities once again. I was a Nutrition Month volunteer last year, and I am now one of the Senior Coordinators for the Campus Food Strategy Group! Food sustainability and food systems have always been a passion of mine, particularly in the context of world hunger. As a result, I decided to apply to the Food Science program after high school but switched to HNS in my second year.  Some interesting facts about myself are that I was born in Ethiopia, I grew up on a potato farm near Bruxelles, MB, and I have 14 people in my family!
