“By receiving the Regional Meeting grant, it really opened my eyes to the depth of our organization and the impact we carry. I am currently working with my chef manager of my kitchen to help him get certification.

To be in a setting with like-minded individuals that are on the same path is such a grounding experience. My facility allows for individuals to attend these meetings to grow and to be rejuvenated. My district manager wrote a letter of recommendation on my behalf, to assist me in attaining the Regional Meeting grant and paid for my airfare.”
