School Nutrition Programs (SNP) Academy


As part of the Professional Standards Training Grant, the Office of School Nutrition worked with Colorado State University (CSU) to redesign the New Directors Orientation training as a one-day training course, supplemented by a series of online modules.This training will provide school food service directors and kitchen managers with the necessary skills  to successfully operate a school food service program. Participants will learn about menu planning, free and reduced price processes, meal counting and claiming, procurement and food safety. This class is a perfect learning opportunity for both new employees needing to learn the basics or existing employees wanting a refresher on the regulations.
