"I have realized how important it is to have those credentials next to your name, not only to show your dedication and professionalism to the field, but, for the experience and support ANFP brings to your organization. "

"Being a CDM, the very least I can do to show my appreciation is to provide them with safe, nutritious and creative meals for them to relish. For many of them it is not simply just a meal but it is a time to socialize, possibly try something new, and reminisce about the meals they enjoyed with their family and friends over the years."
