Ward 4 Civic Hero Award Presented To Lisa Cantkier
Lisa Cantkier’s mission in life has been to help adults and children with celiac disease live a normal life. As a holistic nutritionist, educator and writer specializing in food allergies and intolerance, she has worked to educate and help people manage their diets and has established an award-winning website, GlutenFreeFind.com.
In recognition of her efforts and her volunteer work, the Civic Hero Award for Ward 4 was presented to Cantkier by Vaughan Council last evening. In addition to her nutrition work, Cantkier also volunteers at local schools and coaches her son’s soccer team.
“It is inspiring to see how one person can have such an incredible impact on the greater community. I congratulate Lisa Cantkier for her efforts to educate people about celiac disease and the importance of good nutrition. We are fortunate in Vaughan to have so many people who are actively involved in civic life. It is people like Lisa Cantkier, with their commitment to improving the community, who are making our city a better place.”
-Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua
“Our community is made up of dedicated and caring people who truly impact our City, and help make it a better place to live. Lisa is an exemplary example of this, which is why she is so deserving of the Civic Hero Award. Lisa embodies the true spirit of volunteerism and is a role model for people living with celiac disease. We are blessed in Vaughan with people who give back willingly and wholeheartedly. I want to thank Lisa for setting such a positive example for the community.”
