“Our charitable foundation has had the privilege of working with Dr. Ruetz on several school food research projects. From the initial stages of project planning to the final presentation of results, Dr. Ruetz demonstrated a remarkable depth of knowledge on school food programming, a keen understanding of our research objectives, and the ability to communicate results in a clear and compelling manner.

Her commitment to and support of non-governmental organizations and governments working in this space has made a tremendous impact on advancing school food in Canada. Students and school food programs across the country are lucky she has dedicated her career to this work and our foundation’s been privileged to get the chance to work with and learn from her.”
