curing live rock

I'm a newbie with my first fish only live rock tank. It is cycled with two damsels, some live rock and a few inverts. I'm going to add new live rock and purchased some uncured lr from the LFS. I'm curing it in a bucket before i introduce it to the tank according to most instructions I've read but my question is this. The lady I bought the rock from said I should feed flake fish food to the uncured live rock while it's going through the curing process. None of the sites I've been to mention feeding while curing the live rock. Is this a good idea?

you dont need to feed the uncured lr any type of foods , if its truely uncured there will be enough die off to have an ammonia spike and that should cycle it

feeding live rock

This seems to make more sense to me. Thanks for the help.
