Jacob Green, CDM, CFPP
CDM Credentialing Exam Grant

“The grant I received from NFEF allowed me to take the CDM exam to propel my career in food service. After passing the exam I was able to secure a position as the food service director for a large school district in my area. Without this grant, I cannot say for sure that I would have secured this position so for that I am very grateful!”

Green is the Food Service Director for Lakewood City School District and oversees 11 sites and serves a population of 4,500 students.
