The Societies Mission and Vision



debbieIt is with great sadness that I share news of the passing of Debbie Couwenberg following her courageous battle with lung cancer. Debbie has been a member of OSNM & CSNM for many years.  She was the OSNM Membership Co-Chair.  
Debbie has been a valued member of the Sienna family for 10 years, first as part of the Woodhall Park family and then working alongside Julie Cavaliere and the Nutritional/Environmental team.

We will remember Debbie for her enthusiasm and willingness to roll up her sleeves and dive straight into a project, her wonderful sense of humor, and her iconic laugh. I would like to offer my gratitude and thanks for all that she has done, and know that she will be tremendously missed by everyone, including her friends, collegues and business associates who have had the privilege of working with and alongside her.
Unfortunately, due the limitations placed on many businesses and services at this time as we all do our part to limit the spread of the COVID19 virus, funeral arrangements for Debbie have been put on hold.  Debbie’s family has said that there will be a celebration of life in the future.  Eulogy

I would ask that you all keep Debbie and her family in your thoughts at this time. Thank you.
Sincerely, Maria Gomer, President OSNM

Our History

The Ontario Food Service Supervisor's Association was formed in 1983. The Association's main objective was to ensure high standards of training for its members, and to ensure quality Foodservice to the public. In 1991, the association changed its name to reflect the name of its governing body, the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management.

  • “MORE THAN FOOD”- Nutrition Month 2020. March is Nutrition Month and this year’s theme recognizes that optimal nutrition goes beyond what we eat – it’s also about how we eat! Registered Dietitians have long been encouraging “Mindful Eating”, and the new 2019 Canada’s Food Guide reflects this messaging. Key messages include slowing down to take time to eat, paying attention to your hunger and fullness cues, planning meals/cooking at home, preparing and eating meals with others, enjoying your food and being mindful of your eating habits.

  • Healthy eating is about so much more than food!
