Safe Food For Seniors Introduced to Congress!

On May 23, 2013, U.S. Representatives Tom Latham (R-IA), and co-sponsor Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced Safe Food for Seniors Act of 2013 ( H.R. 2181) in Congress! 

H.R. 2181 requires that federally-funded skilled nursing facilities (SNF) have their Director of FoodServices, in the absence of a full-time dietitian, be trained as a Certified Dietary Manager, Certified Food Protection Professional (CDM, CFPP), or a Dietetic Technician, Registered (DTR), or have the equivalent training from military experience or traditional education.

The Safe Food for Seniors Act of 2013 (H.R. 2181) ensures the recognition of the CDM credential nationwide. Stay tuned for more information, including a link to the Safe Food for Seniors web page,devoted specifically to the bill and a grassroots campaign.
