“Achieving the Certified Dietary Manager credential was the next step in furthering my career, after plateauing at my current facility and being passed over several times for a promotion. The NFEF grant I received has opened doors, enabling me to achieve this certification, thereby making me eligible for future promotions.

“Upon receiving certification my current service director recommended me for a 5% raise. I am currently employed at a Disability and Special Needs facility in South Carolina.”
