Simply stated, my Food for Life training experience was awesome! As a busy mom of two young boys, I loved the convenience of being able to complete the coursework at my own pace, and I greatly appreciated the quick turnaround with responses to questions I had. The Food for Life online training program also included live presentations and sessions that offered a wealth of information and the opportunity to connect with fellow Food for Life trainees. I could not be more appreciative of my online Food for Life training.
