Our 16th annual Food For Thought event spotlights Michael Landsberg. Michael has been a prominent face and voice on the Canadian sports scene since 1984. With his unique style, he quickly became one of this country’s most polarizing personalities- perceived by some as forthright and others as arrogant.
In 2009 people began to agree more on Michael after he publicly shared his then decade-long struggle with severe depression and anxiety. Since then, he has become one of this country’s loudest voices- pushing for all Canadians to see mental illness as a sickness, not a weakness. Michael frequently used his platform as producer and host of Off the Record on TSN to change people’s opinion of mental illness.
Michael has been an official spokesperson for Bell Let’s Talk Day since that initiative was launched. In 2015 Michael launched his own initiative, a not-for-profit, called SickNotWeak. The campaign is dedicated to changing the way Canadians see mental illness.
www.SickNotWeak.com gives a voice to celebrities and everyday folks to share their struggles and their views on mental health issues.

About Food For Thought
Food For Thought is CNDCF’s annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the event are directed each year to our Impact Fund, which supports operational excellence, enabling us to sustain granting programs that benefit charities and community initiatives. Every dollar invested in that evening allows your Foundation to reach out to a broader philanthropic community and partner with more non-profit organizations to build a stronger Cambridge and North Dumfries.
