The program is intended to assist individuals in developing job readiness skills. We focus on finding a position for the individual that meets their interests, needs, and capabilities. The program provides professional and personal growth for the individual, and the rewards to the company and our employees are immeasurable.

Lintons and our employees not only learn how people with disabilities can contribute, but that working with individuals with disabilities can raise morale.

Lintons Food Service Management’s WOW Training program (Within One Week) was developed to ensure our associates get started with the right training. WOW focuses on the integral training needed in the food service industry and at Lintons. WOW is conducted during the onboarding process. Training topics include Personal Hygiene and Infection Control, Food Storage, Portion Control, Customer Service and Safety. WOW training is conducted by both the associate’s manager and co-workers. Personal Hygiene and Infection control reviews keeping equipment, surfaces and tools clean along with personal hygiene. This topic is of the utmost importance to protect both our clients and associates from any food borne illness and cross contamination. At Lintons we believe that training is the key to success. Training improves morale among associates, increases motivation and provides the best service to our clients!
According to Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom, breakfast is critical to childhood learning and health, yet many children start the school day hungry. Providing breakfast in the classroom is one of the most effective ways of delivering school breakfast. For example, it increases School Breakfast Program participation by up to 98 percent. By moving school breakfasts from the cafeteria to the classroom, more students get the opportunity to eat in the morning and be ready to learn.
