The scammer herself
A Toronto catering company that claims to have fed one million of the “highest-quality” meals to Ontario children is a fly-by-night operation working out of a fast-food restaurant and passing off conventional or poorly cooked food as premium fare.
Whole Green Kids, which caters to preschool child-care centres and Montessori schools in the GTA and Ottawa, promising locally grown, organic, as well as kosher and halal meals, delivers virtually none of the above, a Star investigation has found.
Former employees and suppliers describe a company in chaos — buying no-name foods at discount groceries and skimping on both quality and portions.
The three-year-old firm is run by Susan Blouin, a gregarious, smooth-talking entrepreneur who, despite declaring bankruptcy four years ago owing $430,000, lives in a rented $2.2 million Georgian home in Thorncrest Village and drives a Porsche Cayenne SUV.
Blouin told the Star her company is an “awful mess” and she blames a “mutiny by staff” for the problems. She is trying to make improvements.

Canada is unfortunately full of scammers and it's a growing industry, but scams involving children is just the lowest. It reminds me vaguely of the Roma who travel throughout Europe in the summer who feed their children alcohol to make them sleep.
