Carmen Trudeau

Kitchen Manager

Mankato Men’s Program


Carmen started cooking at the House of Hope in April 09.  She worked in an office for 30 years prior to coming here. She states that everyday here is a learning experience. She never pictured herself cooking for a group of 45 people, but really enjoys it.  Carmen has 3 children, and 2 grandchildren- who she loves spending time with. When she’s not busy with them she enjoys watching the Twins, and is a die hard Survivor fan.
