Receiving this grant has elevated my status as a foodservice professional on a couple of levels. I work for a contract management company, so not only was my employer impressed with me taking action to become a CDM, CFPP, but the long-term care facility that I managed was happy, too. As a CDM, CFPP, our company is now in compliance with the CMS regulation requirements for the Director of Food and Nutrition Services. In addition, I also received a substantial raise. Thanks, Hormel.
