Building relationships and client satisfaction are top priorities. She is passionate about community wellness and supporting local business. In 2010 she received the Community Leadership Award (Adult Category) from United Way of Simcoe County and in 2014 was nominated for the Citizen of the Year in Orillia.

We are very, very grateful," said Christine Hager, executive director of The Sharing Place. Hager honoured CCI by presenting general manager Bob Hart and human resources manager Karen Foster with a certificate of appreciation Friday. It's about $15,000 a year and it helps us plan our budget and purchases," Hager said. Hager said people who have used the food bank and find a job recognize the importance of giving back and paying it forward. We average $25,000 a year. (CCI is) very special in our hearts," Hager said.

Christine Hager, seen here in the warehouse of the Sharing Place Food Bank, retires Thursday as the organization's executive director. This week, Hager will be walking out that door one final time. She is retiring as executive director of the Sharing Place Thursday. Hager has been in Orillia nearly 15 years, spending most of that time serving the community through not-for-profit organizations. She was hired as executive director at the food bank after a number of years at Couchiching Jubilee House, including six on its board of directors. She was between jobs when the opportunity to take over at the Sharing Place arose. It was right in her wheelhouse. "I knew I wanted to stay... in something that would contribute to the community in terms of not-for-profit," Hager said. Hager agreed that her job can be very satisfying, knowing that she and her staff have provided necessary help to Orillians who need it. Hager may be retiring Thursday, but she will remain a fixture of the not-for-profit scene in Orillia. She said she plans to continue working with the food movement and the Orillia Food Council, two causes with direct associations to the Sharing Place. However, she, like so many, would rather there not be a food bank to support. "I think everybody that's in here would love the day where we could lock that door and not have to open it up," Hager said. "Everybody would have food to eat, healthy food on a consistent basis." Until then, the remaining staff and volunteer will continue the work done by Hager and her predecessors. "I feel we as a team - because I have an amazing staff and volunteers that are out of this world - that we've made a huge difference and will continue to make a huge difference," she said.

"It's exceptional, because it helps us increase nutrition, which is the direction we are moving in at the food bank," said Christine Hager, executive director of The Sharing Place.
"Now that things are coming into season, we will probably have to come here every couple of days to see what is going on," Hager said. Produce from several tower gardens, recently installed at city hall, will also go to food bank clients, Hager noted.
