 I would like to personally thank you for the food that was available at the Special Olympic Games. I was a volunteer at the SKSS. on both Saturday and Sunday and also went to the brunch at Nor Kam. The food was delicious and plentiful.I enjoyed working for the games and had lots of good experiences. thank you for the great service and generosity. I worked as a security person.

 " I wanted to say how much I appreciated Canuel's service this week. From trying to plan with numbers that were unreliable at best to reacting to the needs day to day, your team was outstanding. And best of all I received a lot of compliments on the quality of the food which I wanted to pass on to you. The volunteers thought the food was delicious and it became a point of discussion where volunteers were encouraging others to go check it out because it was so goo.

I've never seen that kind of response before. I've passed on these comments to Dan Howe as well and I won't hesitate to recommend you for future work.

All my best,"

 "Hello Kim,

 I commented each day at the games how fresh and delicious the lunches were. I do a lot of volunteering and these lunches were above average.

One of your courteous staff handed me a card so thought I would let you know my thoughts.

"Hi John,

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for the fabulous boxed lunches.

They were a huge hit AND the representative from the Cdn Chiefs of Police said it restored his faith in box lunches.

THanks again!"
