Past Chair of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce, Julia is a restaurateur and business owner, community leader and founder of HealthyFam, a not-for-profit initiative that helps children, families, and seniors build a foundation for healthy living.
“We could not be happier to announce Julia Hanna as our new Community Ambassador,” said Bob Griesbach, Board Chair of Oakville Meals on Wheels. “There is not a person more suitable for this role as we head into a new year of dedicated service to the members of our community who rely on us not just for healthy meals but also social interaction.”
“I am very pleased to take on the role of Community Ambassador for Oakville Meals on Wheels,” said Julia Hanna. “What Oakville Meals on Wheels offers to our wonderful Oakville community is so much more than just a meal – it’s about using food as the catalyst for building important connections and decreasing social isolation. And, it’s about ensuring that seniors and those who need help have a familiar face frequently checking in with them to make sure that they are getting healthy meals and are doing well. Oakville Meals on Wheels additionally provides the organization’s extensive group of volunteers the unique opportunity to listen to the incredible stories that our community’s seniors share and learn from their experiences. It’s a positive experience for everyone involved in this important community-driven organization.”
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Julia and her team have continued to cook for family, friends and members of our Community who need some assistance with meals during this difficult time. Julia continues to be a true leader in our Community.
